Watervliet District Library
Connects People, Inspires Ideas, and Transforms Lives
Library Garden Park
The Watervliet District Library board has worked for many years to make the park area, directly in front of the library, a place of rest and beauty. The past two years have seen this goal blossom into the peaceful spot they envisioned. Plants provide critical habitat for butterflies, the brick walk-way honors and remembers significant people in our lives and seating offers a place to read and reflect.


Library Garden Park has a new addition! The beautiful new pergola provides a great reflective space, any time of the year.

The library is the grateful recipient of a
Frederick Upton Foundation grant, 
helping us complete
the second phase of our garden project.

Take a stroll along our walkway and visit the memories of Watervliet friends, families and industries, engraved along the bricked pathways!
Give a lasting gift that will impact the lives of young and old alike
Honor a friend or loved one by purchasing an engraved brick for the new Watervliet Library Garden Park

For a donation of $75 you can purchase an engraved brick "in honor of" or "in memory of" a special person in your life.  Legacy walk bricks also make great commemorative gifts in recognition of special occasions like birthdays, anniversaries, Mother's Day and Father's Day, and other holidays.
