User authentication in Node JS Express app. Do you need Passport?

I have to say, the experience under Noda is not enough.
Write a small application for Express + Sequelize, in fact, a directory. The question arose as to authorize users in the system. Authorization is local only, no social networks and so forth (maybe the AD will be, but later). The division of users into groups with different access rights.
Question - does it make sense to understand Passport? Or write with the pens? Or maybe there's something less monstrous?

Makes sense to at least get an idea of how it works. Continue to tie any authorization scheme and not to reinvent the wheel.
