I go to the library to pick up audio books to listen while driving. I go there for their wonderful lectures and pick up toys for my granddaughter to play with when she visits from VT. The people are very helpful and a great resource.

New modern library is on its way with various spaces for several uses including quiet reading zones overlooking the Saugatuck River, maker spaces, a music studio, work space and meeting rooms. The language clubs are fantastic as are the programs for kids and visiting lecturers.

Look on site for dates! You will have a blast! Library under fabulous new construction but will be holding some sales off site...including newly developed old YMCA Area for Holidays.

Always a good spot to work, read and relax. Friendly staff and good coffee. Steps away from busy downtown Wesport. Look forward to seeing the renovations completed.
