Osceola Library Gets a Facelift

September 18, 2019

The town of Waterville Valley’s historic Osceola Library recently got a facelift thanks to Stachecki Builders, who did the carpentry work, and my husband, Harry Stearns, who did the painting.

The library 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 on the corner of Boulder Path and West Branch Roads in 1955. The building became a town meeting place and later served as office space for the Waterville Company. After a fire destroyed the Waterville Inn in 1967, the library, previously housed in the Inn, moved into the old school house.

The Osceola Library is open Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 3-5 p.m.; daily in the summer. Residents, property owners and visitors are all welcome to browse the fine selection of books.  In addition to current best sellers, both fiction and nonfiction, the library has a collection of children’s books and books suitable for young adults.

Mark your calendar for the Fall Book Sale on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 12-3 p.m. on the grounds of the Library. This event is rain or shine.
