What is a Library?

Waltham Public Library
What is a Library?
A Library is a Community
It’s a melting pot
A place people gather
Young and old
Rich and poor
Citizens and new comers to our great country
Heck, even politicians come to the library.

Where else can you find so much information with people willing to help?
If you can’t come in person, you can call (781-314-3425) or contact us via e-mail. If we can’t answer your questions, we can point you in the right direction.

It’s not your grandparent’s library any more; besides books we have DVDs, CDs, audio books, Internet access via in-house computers, as well as wireless connection throughout, so you can bring your own laptop, or borrow one of ours.  I’ve even seen people, using their laptops while enjoying our gardens, weather permitting.

If we don’t have what you are looking for, we can try to locate the item at another location; either in our network or from a library out of our system. Then we can have it delivered to the Minuteman Library of your choosing for convenient pick up.

Tax forms and information are available here. Come on in to pick up what you need, other than contacting the “taxing” agency, we seem to be the most convenient place to get them.

You can search for your family’s roots in the Waltham Room. Help yourself, or call ahead for help from the local history specialist.

Programs are available for people of all ages, whether it be story hour and play time in the Children’s Room or Opera, how-to seminars, book discussions, appearances by entertainers and civic group meetings in the Lecture Hall, there are many diverse opportunities offered at the library.

I’ve known the Waltham Library for most of my life, as soon as I could print my name my Mom brought me in to get my very own card.
What a thrill to be able to work in the place I’ve enjoyed throughout my life. It is one of the few city services my husband and I regularly use, we really enjoy getting something personal out of the taxes we pay.

So come on in, get some value from the taxes you pay!
Explore the Library it’s a great place to be.
