The Westport Library

Transformation Project

The Library's mission is to empower the individual and strengthen the community through dynamic interaction and the lively exchange of ideas. The Library strives to provide an environment that stimulates curiosity and encourages lifelong learning.

The Library's facility, built in 1986, has not been updated significantly in nearly two decades. It is no longer state-of-the-art, nor flexible enough to accommodate modern library usage. The building no longer supports the Library’s mission.

The Westport Library building is poised for an exciting transformation. The redesign of the Library’s interior space will be more responsive to the ever-changing needs of Westporters.
