Discover Goodrich Memorial Library, one of the older libraries in the state of Vermont in the city of Newport, Orleans County. This historic library is the largest and the other half of two full-time libraries in the county.

The library was established in 1899 through the bequest of Converse Goodhue Goodrich and wife Almira. Architect William Storey designed the building, who employed a Romanesque-Queen Anne architectural style. The museum opened with 65,000 books in its shelves.

Exploring the library?s interior is an experience as fulfilling as reading its book collections. Upstairs, the hall consists of a period-style art room, meeting hall, office, and reading room. The library?s most popular feature is the floor-to-ceiling wall of glass cases containing a myriad of stuff from rocks to stuffed animals. The library was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
