Happy New Year! The 2019 construction season is scheduled to start soon. In an effort to make things easier for Waterford residents, the Waterford Library has decided to make 2019 FINE FREE! You should continue to renew your items online, by phone, or in person, but if construction makes it hard to get here and you are a little late, no worries! All fines will be forgiven once the items are returned. Thank you for supporting your local library.
