Westport Library - The Heart of a Healthy Community


In today's fast-paced digital world, where information is at our fingertips and technology rules, public libraries might seem like relics of the past. However, it's important not to overlook their vital role in fostering a healthy community and empowering individuals in ways that extend far beyond just offering books. What does the Westport Free Public Library mean to us?


  1. Access to Information: The Library is a treasure trove of knowledge, providing access to a wide range of resources including books, magazines, newspapers, and digital materials.

  2. Lifelong Learning: The Library offers an array of programs for people of all ages from programs for young children to events for seniors.

  3. Digital Inclusion: In an era dominated by technology, the library can bridge the digital gap by providing free internet access, computer facilities, and digital literacy information.

  4. Cultural Hub: This summer we celebrated our cultural diversity by hosting Candida Rose and her music of Cape Verde. We have also held exhibitions, and discussions that showcased the rich heritage of our community.

  5. Social Connection: The Westport Free Public Library serves as safe and neutral space for people to gather, connect, and engage with others.

Thanks to our members and donors, FOWL helps ensure the library can continue to play a pivotal role in fostering lifelong learning, promoting social connections, and creating a sense of belonging within our communities.


Please celebrate and support our library and the dedicated individuals who work tirelessly to make it thrive! Your donation matters....Click here
