TheGoodrich Me­mo­rial Li­brary is back! Our beau­ti­ful New­port li­brary is bet­ter than ever; sparkling clean from top to bot­tom, with new dis­plays, as well as all of our reg­u­lar ser­vices. Restora­tion Un­lim­ited and the staff of the Goodrich have done a fan­tas­tic job restor­ing the li­brary to its for­mer glory. Af­ter a month-long clean­ing and re­fur­bish­ing, all traces of the smoke dam­age are gone. We thank ev­ery­one who has pitched in to help over­come this sit­u­a­tion. But we still need your help.

Our in­sur­ance will cover most of the cost of restora­tion, but we are left with a $5000.00 de­ductible pay­ment. So, once again we are turn­ing to all of you who ap­pre­ci­ate the Goodrich and all it stands for.
