Building Opening

The library building is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 10AM to 5PM. Patrons are able to browse both floors, pick up holds, and use public computers, copiers, printer, scanner, etc.

Holds waiting to be picked up are back in their original location, upstairs next to the elevator. Remember, you'll need to have your library card, or know your card number, in order to check out library materials. Meeting rooms are available for use and may be reserved here.

The book return slot on the east side of the building is always open. The drive-up book return box is currently closed.


Library Take Out--for limited time only.

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.


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 in person during open hours.
