Back to School

We hope everyone is having a great second week of school! Don’t forget that the library is a great resource for school papers and projects! After hearing from Watervliet Elementary School teachers about what projects will be assigned, we have purchased new materials for you to check out. See you soon!


Watervliet Elks Lodge Grant

Over the summer, the Watervliet Public Library received a grant from the Watervliet Elks Lodge for $2000 for new materials. This grant was made possible by the members who donated $4.60 to the Elks National Foundation. The $4.60 was set as a per cap for each member and for every lodge that meets this they are eligible for various grants. The Watervliet Public Library used this money to purchase new children, young adult and adult materials as well as to provide funding for our 2015 Summer Reading Program.

Thank you Watervliet Elks Lodge!

Brownstone Book Fund Donation

The Watervliet Public Library has just received a gift of 100 new children’s books, ranging from pre-kindergarten through early readers. These books were a donation from the Brownstone Book Fund, a private foundation in New York City, interested in fostering early reading, a love of books and encouraging parents and children to read together. Come to the library today to explore and enjoy our new collection!
