Toyota Camry 2001--Interference Engine?

edited November -1 in Repair and Maintenance
I have a 2001 Camry with very low miles, just over 37k, bought from a relative. It is due (well, overdue) for a timing belt due to age. Is the 4-cylinder engine in this car an "interference" type that damages the valves if/when the belt breaks? Or does it just stall?

What else should I have replaced at the same time? Water pump? Serpentine belts? Thank you in advance.
