Description:

The Watertown Library Association is a nonprofit organization which has served the reading and research needs of the community since 1865 when it was incorporated by a special act of the state legislature. The first library was opened in The Academy on The Green, later moved to rented quarters above a store on Deforest Street, then across the street to a gray granite building which is now Walker Hall. Seventy-five years later in 1958, the library opened for business in a contemporary masonry and glass structure at its present site at 470 Main Street. In 1968 the Watertown Library Association merged with the Oakville Library Association and a branch was opened on Davis Street. The operating budget of the Association is supported primarily by a town grant, which is supplemented by income from the Association's endowment, state aid, contributions, membership dues, and special fundraising events. Funds for building and capital improvements have been raised by the Association. The Association is governed by a board of eleven trustees. Ten are elected by the membership and one is appointed by the Town Council.
