Many people have asked how to help the Waterville Public Library following the water damage from a burst pipe on Saturday, December 17, 2016.
Thank you for these offers of support and sympathy. The Library is really lucky that insurance will cover some of the damage and repair. However, we don’t know yet how much of the damage will be covered by insurance. We are particularly concerned about the loss of our Children’s science/technology and natural history/wildlife books. These are some of the most popular and heavily-used materials in our Children’s nonfiction collection. Restoring this collection to meet the interests and needs of Waterville’s children is a priority for the Library.
How can you help?
Please keep those sentiments of support and love coming our way! Your encouragement and kindness are so appreciated and make such a difference.
If you are inspired and able, please consider donating a gift of cash to the Library to help us restore our Children’s nonfiction collection and cover costs of repair not covered by insurance. Donations can be dropped off at the Library or mailed to Waterville Public Library c/o RESTORE THE LIBRARY, 73 Elm Street, Waterville, ME 04901. Donations can also be made online by clicking on the Donate button on the Waterville Public Library web site: www.watervillelibrary.org or by clicking this link to donate.
