Favorite Experience in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills

I love sipping coffee and browsing through texts at John Bale Bookstore in Waterbury while savoring the buzz of activity in this “third space”— next to home and work, it’s often where people find community with others, stoking ideas, breaking bread together, inspiring volunteerism, and building relationships.
