Friday started off with schools in session in Westport, but that quickly changed as snow began to fall early, and students were dismissed early.

Westport's municipal offices, the Westport Public Library and the Westport Weston Family Y all closed at noon. Saturday's library program, "Designers Under 30" is cancelled, but Saturday night's WestportREADS "Gatsby" party at the library is still on -- at least as of midday Friday.

The Westport Arts Center is closed and the MTC performance of "Ancestral Voices" has been cancelled Friday night.
