Our Collection

Books, DVDs, CDs and Magazines

The library’s  collection includes more than 20,000 physical materials, including books, DVDs, CDs, and magazines.  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.

Interlibrary Loan Program

If you cannot find an item that you’d like in the Catamount catalog, we are often able to borrow that item from a library outside of our consortium through our Interlibrary Loan Program.

You can come into the library to fill out an Interlibrary Loan request or you can use our online Interlibrary Loan form.
