We are a small but mighty branch situated in the historic and growing community of Waterville. Our library has a bit of everything for everyone. Similar to our community, we blend tradition with new areas of service. Waterville Branch is situated perfectly next to Conrad Park which features a Gazebo, playground, walking path and baseball diamonds. It makes for back-to-back fun when making family excursions to the library.

We offer storytimes for babies, toddlers and preschoolers and book clubs for adults. Computer programing classes and a 3D Printer are available for all to use. Books are not going away, and we have tons of them! Our friendly library staff can help you find whatever you need in print. Our displays always have something interesting for you to choose. We can also help you set up your tablet or phone to read ebooks.

A little bit about me: I have worked in the library field for 18 years in various libraries and capacities. I have enjoyed working at the Waterville Branch since 2015 as the manager. When not at the library, my leisure time consists of spending time with my family, reading and listening to audiobooks and podcasts, biking and hiking area trails, and playing video games.

We look forward to your visit!

History

Serving the residents of southwestern Lucas County, Waterville Branch has been at its present location since 1964, having outgrown classroom space at the local elementary school. After a renovation in 1980, the facility quickly outgrew its space and expanded again in 2004. Waterville continues to be a viable meeting place for a diverse and growing population.
