Our Collection

Our Collection

The library’s collection includes more than 18,000 physical materials, including books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines, as well as eAudios and eBooks available to download.  A leased collection of popular adult books supplements the Library’s circulating physical collection.  In addition, items owned by our partner libraries in the Catamount Library Network can be placed on hold through our shared catalog.  Interlibrary loans may be requested for materials not available through the Catamount Library Network.  Our staff welcome your requests and suggestions of materials to purchase.

Items in the library’s physical collection can be located by searching in the shared Catamount catalog. The catalog is not case sensitive.  When searching, omit the words “a”, “an”, or “the” at the beginning of the title.  You can focus your search by selecting the type of media or item and selecting Waterbury or All Libraries on the advanced search page.  Don’t hesitate to ask our staff to show you how to log into your account, search the catalog, place holds, and renew items online.

Our Digital Library

Our digital collections include eAudios and eBooks from OneClick Digital and eBooks from OverDrive.  Both services offer detailed help sections to assist users.  Library staff can also help you get started.

Browse these collections from the Quick Links buttons on the right.  You will need your library barcode number to set up an account with OneClick Digital or to download content from OverDrive.  Call the library if you do not have your library card.
