About the Library


Welcome to the Waterville Public Library. Since the Library was founded in 1874 (later chartered by the Board of Regents as a free public library in 1939), inhabitants of the region that is now bounded by the Waterville Central School District have recognized the need for preservation of knowledge, ideas and free access to information for all. That mission continues today in the Library’s state-of-the-art facility, opened in 2006, where you will find warm and inviting surroundings that provide traditional and all the latest services to support the reading, viewing, listening and information seeking needs and interests of all our patrons, young and old.

In collaboration with the Mid York Library System and its 42 sister libraries within the system, we strive to stay up to date with rapidly emerging technologies and thereby operate a library without walls— round the clock every day.

Please feel free to contact us with your feedback about the Library and its services and this website at (315) 841-4651, email suggestionbox@watervillepl.org or stop by the Library when you are in the neighborhood.
