The Westport Public Library's cafe will extend its hours for the summer from Memorial Day, May 31, through Labor Day, Sept. 3, by remaining open until 7:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 5:30 p.m. Fridays and 4:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.

In an effort to be environmentally responsible, the cafe uses plates and napkins made from recycled materials and its cold cups, used for the iced tea and lemonade are the kind of plastic that is recyclable in Westport.

Nearly every item in the cafe is either produced locally or provided by a local vendor.
