Historical Context

The Port Washington Public Library has been serving the community since 1892 when it was housed in a local family’s front parlor. Today we are a modern service-oriented institution. The Library serves the Port Washington School District and is funded primarily by local taxes levied on real estate.

Scope of Collection

The Port Washington Library History Collection contains images from the planning and construction of the library in the mid-1960s to life and library activities that have taken place since that time.
