Rockport Library Planning Update

Funding and Timing
The final concept for a new library was presented to the Rockport Select Board on Monday August 8th. The Select Board had the difficult task of deciding how much money the town should put toward a new library and when it would be voted on.

The Select Board decided that a bond article will be on the November 8th ballot asking the voters to approve a 2 million dollar bond for a new library. This is half of the needed funds for the new library. The cost for a new library is just under 4 million dollars.  The other half of the money needed for the new library will come from grants, private donations and fund-raising.

The Concept

The AHLPC has been listening to all the feedback it has gotten. As a result of that feedback changes were made to the exterior and roof treatment of the design. If you want to see this new design click HERE.
