The Latin inscription reads -
Ter et Quarter anno Revisens Aequor Atlanticum Impunewhich means -
Three and four times a year revisiting the Atlantic with impunity.
Port Glasgow's coat of arms can also be seen in the decorated pediment above the Library.
Crossing the Atlantic with impunity - a proud boast for a very proud town.
