Due to sewer line repair work, the Rockport Room will be closed to the public until the fall of 2015.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. For genealogy research the library now provides access to (library use only) and HeritageQuest (remote access for Rockport residents or library use)!   

We are in the process of rearranging some  collections in an effort to simplify searching for new items and to make more space for mysteries. When the move is finished, you will find:

  • New Books - across from the Main Desk
  • Mysteries - on more shelves in Franz's Room
  • SciFi - in Franz's Room
  • Young Adult (YA) Books - on shelves near the public computers along the wall near School Street
Monday Night at the Movies:   On Mon., Aug. 31, @ 4:30 we'll be airing "Jurassic Park". Come and relive the thrills of this classic adventure! Teen Movie Night follows at 7:30 with "The Giver" starring Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep. 
Rockport residents now have access to TumbleBooks!  TumbleBooks is an online collection of animated, talking picture books which teach young children the joys of reading in a format they'll love.
Scratched Disc? The library can help! Thanks to the Friends of the Library we now have a disc repair machine. We will try to repair any scratched disc--CDs, DVDs, Blue-ray DVDs, or video games! The  suggested donation of $1 will benefit the Friends of the Library.
