The Newport Public Library came into existence in November 1889. The first library was in an old schoolhouse and was put together with the help of citizens who volunteered their time and efforts. The Library was relocated in 1897 to its current location.

Washington County Library System
Washington County installed a kiosk at the Newport Transit Station, 250 Red Rock Crossing, for residents to utilize for checking out items through the Washington County Library system. Residents can reserve items online at www.co.washington.mn.us/library. Once a resident's items are ready, they may pick them up and drop them off at the Transit Station.
