Waterford Township Public Library
- New Jersey
Waterford Township Public Library (WTPL) is a small municipal library, which serves the Township of Waterford. As reported in the 2010 Census the total population is 10,649. The library had 6,055 members at the end of December 2011, according to the Director’s report: Statistic Totals for 2011.
WTPL was established by public referendum in November 1964. The Board of Trustees, as a governing body, was formed in 1966.
About that time, the original Atco School building on Front Street was decommissioned as an educational facility. The structure was repurposed as the township’s municipal building. As a result, the previous municipal building at 2204 Atco Avenue became available for use as a library. The free public library officially opened on November 22nd, 1966, and has remained at this site.
