Support Your Library!
 
The Library depends upon donor support to offer programs like Rhymetime and other early-reader initiatives that build community and nurture young minds. Please help to support and celebrate our young readers and the caring people and programs that provide the foundation for a lifelong love of reading. When you make a gift to the Waterville Public Library, you are truly making a difference in a young person’s life. Few gifts are more important, longer lasting, and more life-changing than the gift of reading Please consider being a Waterville Public Library donor this spring!
