<p>The Newport Way Library reopened in April 2011 after months of renovation. The library is a part of the King County Libarary system. As part of the system, patrons have access to more than 3 million items throughout the county-wide King County Library System.</p>
<p>The library, originally built in the 1970s, has been expanded to 8,700 square feet.</p> <p>The expanded library includes a new bright windowed reading porch, a cushioned window seat and new furniture in the children's area, and an enlarged public meeting area with a cyber bar for laptop users. The front door was moved and the entry covered, and the library now has a new cedar shake roof.</p> <p>In additional to the cosmetic upgrades, the library now has a well-insulated roof and walls, double-paned windows, and energy efficient light fixtures. More than 6,000 new books, magazines, movies, and CDs have been added, along with a self-check-in kiosk to ease material handling.</p> <p>The $2.5 million update was made possible through a $172 million library capital bond approved by voters.</p>
