We are currently scheduling appointments for patrons to enter the Library for browsing. These appointments last up to 30 minutes and may be scheduled on Mondays from 10AM to 2PM and Wednesdays from 2PM to 6PM. We are limiting browsing to 4 patrons at a time. Walk-ins are also welcome, but space is not guaranteed. Patrons under 12 years must remain with a parent or guardian at all times when browsing. A properly worn mask (covering mouth and nose) is required to enter the building.


Book Drops

The book return slot on the east side of the building is open from Monday at 10:00 AM to Friday at 5:00 PM. The drive-up book return box is currently closed.


Library Take Out

Patrons may pick up reserved items from the library through Library Take Out. Only items that are ON HOLD will be distributed through this service. Visit the Library Take Out page to learn more.


Computer Appointments

Appointments to use our public computers are available Mondays from 10 AM to 2 PM and Wednesdays 2 PM to 6 PM. Appointments last 45 minutes and can be scheduled by phone up to one week in advance. Photocopy, scan, fax and print services are also available. Appointments are limited to one per week per patron. Library staff will not be able to assist patrons at the computer.


Free WiFi

The Library has expanded its WiFi to cover our parking lots, no password needed. It is available from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday. Holidays and other library closures may affect these times.


Mobile Hotspots

We are now lending hotspots! A hotspot is a device that uses cellular data to provide wireless Internet access. It is portable and will work anywhere there is cellular coverage. Newport Public Library hotspots will allow up to five WiFi-enabled devices to connect. Use them for email, surfing the web, downloading eBooks, streaming video, or any other function for which you would normally use WiFi or cellular data. Use of the NPL hotspots is subject to the Guidelines for Internet Use in the Policy Manual. Hotspot reservations can be made by calling the main library.


Assistance by Phone

Library staff members are available by phone to provide reference services, library eResource help, place holds, and answer general information requests Monday through Friday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The library phone number is 541-265-2153. Email questions to reference@newportlibrary.org.


New Library Cards

New library cards are issued through the Library Take Out service. If you are unable to visit the library, consider getting an eCard to access the library's online resources.
