The Watertown Library Association is a nonprofit organization which has served the reading and research needs of its community since 1865.
Our mission is to provide our patrons with access and guidance to materials, resources and services for their information, education and enrichment of life. Through computer technology we provide access to our own collections as well as outside resources.
Our Web Site is one of the services we provide as an enhancement to the overall library experience for our patrons, online users, and first time visitors. If you need help, we encourage you to ask our Reference Librarian for assistance in finding the best sources for your research.
