Friends of the Library

Formed in 1979, we are the Friends of the Rockport Public Library. A 501 (c) (3) organization.
Our group works to:

    • Recognize the Rockport Public Library as an integral part of our community
    • Promote public awareness and recognition of the Library
    • Enhance children’s resources and activities
    • Contribute volunteer assistance to Library staff
    • Publicize the cultural, educational, intellectual, and recreational resources of the Library


This fall, the Friends presented a check in the amount of $15,000 to the Library!
