Happenings Outreach Services

From our door to yours

The Rockport Public Library offers long-term and short-term outreach services for local residents who are unable to come to the library for a variety of reasons. Andrea Nichols, Rockport's outreach librarian, delivers standard, large-print and audio books, as well as periodicals and videos to homebound residents within Rockport.


Library materials are picked up and delivered on a schedule that is adapted to individual's needs. Andrea is responsible for checking out, renewing, and returning all materials on each homebound patron's behalf. Therefore, no overdue fines are assessed to residents using this service.


For people who are visually impaired, the outreach program also offers a variety of Talking Books and the player to go with them. Andrea can assist people who have questions about eligibility for and enrollment in this Library of Congress program.


If you or someone you know can benefit from the Rockport Public Library's Outreach Services, please call us at 978-546-6934 to obtain more information or to sign up.
