Waterloo Library celebrates 190th anniversary, looks ahead to expansion

The Waterloo Library & Historical Society is celebrating its 190th anniversary in 2020 by looking forward to its bicentennial.

The goal set out will be to expand its current footprint in Waterloo in the next decade.

“The idea of the expansion is to better serve the community in general, increasing access and, by doing so, creating a space that is a discovery center, where you get to learn about the history (of Waterloo) and increase your knowledge of what interests you,” said Cyndi Park-Sheils, WLHS executive director to the Finger Lakes Times.

A number of events will be held over the next year in celebration of the bicentennial.
