Say "hi" to Carol Bender. She joined our staff
last month as Children's Librarian, and she's looking forward
to greeting you and your children. Carol brings years of experience and lots of enthusiasm to the job. She
wants to hear about your family's reading interests and welcomes your ideas about how the library
can continue to serve Rockport's young people.
