Director's Message

  • Welcoming you to the Waldport Public Library

    Message from the Director

    The Waldport Library achieved a four star rating from the Library Journal in October 2018. One of three libraries in Oregon to receive a star rating. The article can be found at the Library Journal.  Article from the Newport News Times.

    The Library Journal divides the libraries based on budget amounts and then compares the libraries based on five measures: overall circulation, circulation of electronic materials, library visits, program attendance, and public Internet computer use.

    The Waldport Library staff have worked hard to increase the programming for both adults and children over the last year and we have been awarded for our efforts by a wonderful turnout for the programs. Over the summer we averaged 70 to 100 in attendance for the summer reading programs. The adult craft night attendance is now at capacity averaging 25 - 30 people per class. This past summer we had our first adult reading program where tickets were earned each week for the number of books read to then enter into theweekly drawing. 

    The Library partners with the community to create and expand our programs; Seashore Literacy Center, Crestview Elementary School, Waldport Middle and High School, and our local businesses.  We appreciate all the great support we receive from the community.

    We also continue to offer the most current books and DVDs.

    We welcome all new ideas and programs you would like to see at the library.  We are in the process now of planning for the summer programs and hope to have some new and fun activities.

    Thank you to everyone for helping achieve our stars.

    Sue Bennett
