Ever since I moved to this town with my family 13 years ago the library has figured in and been an integral part of every phase of our lives. More than any individual school or store or theater or park, the library of Westport has been there for the Lowman family.
Interested in getting involved? There are many opportunities. Friends contribute volunteer time and energy to create many programs and special events and work with Library staff to meet the needs of the community.
