Ongoing Programs


Books and Brags


We'd like to highlight real-life ways that library books (and online resources) have helped you. Did you use a cookbook to bake a cake for a special occasion? Did you pass your SAT with flying colors using one of our resources? Did your child learn how to do origami using a book from the Children's Department? Submit a picture showing the result of how a library resource helped you achieve something. Examples: A good grade on a report, a selfie of you working on your car, a photo from a family vacation, etc., and let us know which book(s), magazine(s), or online resource(s) you used. Photos may be submitted in person a the Adult Reference desk, sent to waterfordmilib@gmail.com, or tag us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. We will share the photos on social media and in the library.
