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 is poised for an exciting transformation that will take the organization into the 21st century and beyond. A hallmark of this transformation is flexibility. The new space will be unparalleled in its ability to adapt and shift with the ever-changing needs of the community. Learn more about what's in store by watching this brief video below.
