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.

Library Databases:
A wealth of information at your fingertips. Some resources require your library card number, ask a staff member for help.
