Silas Bronson Library KidZone

The Silas Bronson KidZone is dedicated to providing a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for Waterbury-area families, schools, and daycares to come together to enjoy books, computers, socializing and activities. Our librarians spend their time curating a collection that is sure to please even the most finicky reader and host programs that are engaging and fun for kids of all ages.


Stop in and say hello!  We hope to see you soon!

Mission Statement

The Children's Services Division of the Silas Bronson Library provides a safe, nurturing and culturally stimulating environment for children and adults. We recognize our responsibility to serve as a place for children to develop an ongoing interest in reading, learning, and the value of libraries, as well as to assist parents, teachers and caregivers to feel supported in their role.
