Osceola Library – A Waterville Valley Gem

October 22, 2012

For such a small town, Waterville Valley provides an extraordinary level of services, programs, and activities for its property owners, residents and visitors.

The Osceola Library is one of those small town gems.  The library is housed in what was once the town’s one-room schoolhouse. Built in 1885, this charming building was originally located along what is now the fourth fairway of the Waterville Valley Golf Course. It was moved to its present location at the corner of Boulder Path Way and West Branch Roads, across from Snows Mountain in 1955.  The building initially functioned as a town meeting place and later as office space for the Waterville Company.

After a fire destroyed the Waterville Inn in 1967, the town “library,” previously housed in the Inn, moved into the old school house and was christened the Osceola Library.

The Osceola Library is open on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 3-5 p.m. in the winter and spring.  Residents, property owners and visitors are all welcome to enjoy the fine selection of books.  Although the library no longer offers movies or books on tape, they have audio books, some on CD and some MP3s.  There is also a used book section.
