Your Public Library

Your school library is only the beginning... Public libraries are amazing places. Your public library is the Watertown Free Public Library (WFPL), located at 123 Main Street in Watertown, Massachusetts.

The Watertown Free Public Library has books (paper and electronic), movies, museum passes, activities and more for children and adults. If the WFPL doesn't have the book you are looking for, the librarians there can often get what you need from another library. The Library also has a staff of terrific librarians to help you -- have a question? Ask a librarian!
