KMS Partners LLC, is an exclusive partnership within the
Coldwell Banker Westport-Riverside real estate office.

There are two ways to enter the Westport Library: from the upper parking lot, next to the Levitt Pavilion, and the lower lot by the Saugatuck River.
Once inside, you can head off in any direction you choose. There are an infinite number of ways to use what has become one of the Westport’s favorite destinations.
People of all ages love the Maker Space. Located prominently on the main floor, it’s perfect for hands-on construction and experimentation. Little kids help grandparents, and vice versa; many teenagers find a home there too. The 3-D printer is a special bonus.
Just outside the Maker Space, local artists and photographers exhibit their work. Tables overflow with jigsaw puzzles, board games and chess pieces. Anyone is invited to sit down, play, then leave for the next person to take over.
A crack staff of research librarians answers any and all questions, on every subject imaginable. They — and you — have access to databases that would otherwise cost Big Bucks. (They also keep plenty of information in their heads.)
Tech help — for software and hardware — is also available. The staff is augmented by a knowledgeable corps of volunteers (including the best resources: kids).
The children’s section is upstairs. Specially trained librarians offer programs for infants on up. Kids of all ages find a loving, attentive home at the Westport Library.
Teenagers, of course, have their own librarian. They’ve got their own events too. A Hunger Games Night drew a full house last year.
The Westport Library is a favorite hangout during high school exam time, for studying as well as de-stressing. (And you should see the place during emergencies, like hurricanes. It’s packed, thanks to lights, heat and Wifi, plus electrical outlets to power all your devices.)
Meeting rooms are downstairs. The library hosts 1600 events a year, ranging from book groups, author talks and movies to community forums and viewing parties for World Cup soccer games.
Around the corner from the meeting rooms is a well-stocked, eclectic lending library of free DVDs. Downstairs also features the River of Names: hundreds of tiles honoring Westport’s history, and the many families who have helped make it a community.
There’s much more to the Westport Library too. The café is a perfect spot for socializing (you’ll find the sugar for your coffee in an old card catalogue).
Two of the most popular events are held outside, on Jesup Green: the Book Sale each July, with hundreds of thousands of dirt-cheap items, and the Maker Faire every April. Last year’s Faire drew 6,000 people.
The Westport Library is many things, to many people. New residents stop in for one reason, and discover dozens of others resources. It anchors downtown Westport physically, but also emotionally and spiritually.
Oh, yeah. If you want to find actual books, the Westport Library has thousands of those too.
