The Friends of the Newport Public Library are a valuable asset to our library and we could not accomplish all that we do in the community without them. They have an ongoing book sale at the “Twice Read Tales” bookshop at 203 Howard Boulevard in Newport. The sale is every third Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Hardback books are $1 and paperbacks are .25. The inventory available comes from generous patron donations and from books discarded from our collection for various reasons. The funds raised from this book sale
benefit the library by providing items not covered in the budget. Through the years, our Friends group has provided funds for curtains, blinds, security mirrors, summer reading supplies  and much more. We greatly appreciate each and every one of the Friends who work hard to make our library a wonderful place and enable us to serve the Newport community.

If you wish to become a Friend, please drop by our circulation desk for a form. Membership dues are $5 per year. Become an active part of this special group of volunteers who support such a vital aspect of the town of Newport. All are welcome!

Want to help your library?  
Newport Library offers several opportunities to do just that with the following programs:

     Adopt-A-Book is a wonderful way to honor or memorialize an individual or group while supporting your local library. A bookplate will be placed in the front of all adopted books in acknowledgement of the gift.

     Adopt-A-Shelf is a perfect way for youth to help the library and earn community service hours. The sign-up sheet is at the front desk and you will need written permission from a parent or guardian. This program is for both middle school and high school students.

     Adult volunteers are also welcome to come and straighten shelves. Applications are available at the front desk.
