Welcome to the Rockport Public Library
A small town library where everyone is greeted with a smile. Serving as your community-centered library for 100 years and counting! Explore our Future Planning process to learn how we'll move into the next century together.

Mission Statement:
Rockport Public Library is committed to providing the best possible free library service to all of the residents of the Town of Rockport. The library will identify and respond to the needs of our community of library users and seek to provide services that will meet these needs.

Our Spring Newsletter is here!

It's not too late to donate to the book sale. If you have gently used books, audiobooks, or movies you can drop them off at the Library anytime we are open. Call the Library at 236-3642 with any questions

The giant three-day book sale will feature thousands of assorted books of all genres - plus CDs, DVDs, audio books, and more - on 100 tables! The collection includes many novels and mysteries, both recent and vintage; books on cooking and art; and a good number of graphic novels and children’s board books.
The “members only” sale will be held Thursday, July 12 from 5-7pm. You can join the Friends at the door if you have not already renewed for 2018-19.

Library Planning

A ton of work has happened since December and we are now ready to give you the first look at the draft plan for the new library! We here at the library are very excited about this plan. It gives us flexibility, room to grow and will let us service the community in new and wonderful ways.

The only thing I would like to caution people on is that this plan is a draft. It is a very good draft but things can and probably will change in the next few weeks. If you have any questions or input about the plan stop on by the library and chat with the staff we would love to hear from you.

The design has been carefully looked at by the construction management team at Ledgewood Construction and the building is over budget. However, all is not lost! The design team is working on finding cost savings and hope to shrink the amount we are over budget by. The bad news is that it is going to take time to shrink the number. This will set back the vote for a new library for Rockport from June 2018 to November 2018.

We will continue to work hard to bring this design to life.
