Welcome to the Goodrich Memorial Library

Serving the community of Newport for over 100 years

Available to patrons of the Goodrich Memorial Library are books, DVDs, audio books, magazines, newspapers, CDs, and an expanded large print section. We also provide access to public computers, black and white printing, a fax machine, and free Wi-Fi.

The Goodrich Memorial Library first opened its doors in 1899, due in large part to the generous donations of Converse and Almira Goodrich. In 1983, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. Thanks to a substantial grant received in 2003, the library has since been restored to its original beauty and elegance.

The library is handicapped accessible from the rear entrance.
