As an information center, this "library" has been mismanaged for years, with its floating trustee membership. Politicians have hidden dollars necessary for real funding.

The staff is mostly "undertrained" and very unethical on the inside. Their pay rates are high due to generous managers from the past. But their skills are inadequate to be quite candid.

Waterford came into the 21st century due to a previous administrator who was organized and technologically aware. However this professional librarian left when he again had no contract, a "shorted" pension, and the board withheld payroll deductions from the state. How this place was never fined by the IRS is a miracle. And the state pension division should have closed them years ago, after the board refused to pay their legal obligation.

PROS:
CONS: cramped, dirty, no handicapped access

Unlike your large libraries, you'll find Waterford Twp. library to be a small hometown library with personnel that are friendly, knowledgeable and courteous. I have found materials there that I could not find in large county libraries; and if they don't have it, they will get it for you on inter-library loan. There's a children's section, reference/study section (with computers), seasonal programs for the kids, etc. Lets not forget the basics, like books, magazines, videos, and DVD's. Its a full service library on a small scale and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

this library is so small I would hardly call it a library! It is more like a tiny little shop. We went in only one time and never went back! I prefer to have more space to move around. We decided the one in Winslow was worth the additional five minute drive! If you are looking for a state of the art library then skip right pass this one! You probably have passed this many times and never realized it as it is in a little strip of stores off Atco Avenue.
