Library Construction Crew at Newport

Newport Public Library Construction Crew will start meeting again on Sat., Oct. 29 at 10 AM. We’ll have lots of Lego fun every last Saturday of the month. We have the bricks- we just need the kids. Ages 3 through tweens.
There will be no LLC on Sat., Sept. 24. The library will be close so that we can all be out at Little Buffalo State Park for our annual Bike4Books bicycle tour.

Preschool Storytime at Newport- Little People, Big Feelings!

Newport Public Library is excited to announce the return of weekly pre-K Storytime for children ages 3-5. In addition to letters, numbers, shapes and colors, this year’s program will cover feelings and provide children with strategies to deal with their complex emotions. The program will be held at the library on Tuesday mornings from 10 to 11 starting September 6. Please call (717) 567-6860 to register.

Change to User Fee Policy at Newport

Starting January 1, 2022 NO resident of Perry County will have to pay a user fee to use Newport Public Library. The NPL board of trustees made the decision to eliminate these barriers to library use for the benefit of the whole county, recognizing life-long learning to be essential for everyone. Cardholders who have paid in advance for a year of service will be upgraded to Gold Card status for the remainder of their paid time. Gold Card status gives the cardholder the ability to check out DVDs free of charge. It is important to note that NPL relies heavily on the financial support of the community to continue to operate. We take this opportunity to thank our community members, townships, and businesses for their continued support for our programs and library collection. See our newsletter for details.
