Welcome to the Rockport Public Library

Work is under way to install new fire escapes on the back of the building. For
the time being, parking in our lot is limited. Two spaces have been designated for temporary handicapped parking. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

The Rockport Room is open for local history and genealogy research on Mondays from 1:00 to 7:45 p.m. Volunteers are on hand to assist. When the room is not available, you can research your family history online. For genealogy research the library provides access to (library use only) and HeritageQuest (remote access for Rockport residents or library use)!   

Midweek Movies in December will include Pocketful of Miracles with Glenn Ford and Bette Davis on Wed., Dec. 2; Holiday Inn starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire on Wed., Dec. 9; Miracle on 34th Street with Edmund Gwenn and Maureen O'Hara on Wed., Dec. 16; Polar Express with Tom Hanks and Chris Coppola on Wed., Dec. 23; and Captain's Courageous starring Spencer Tracy and Freddie Bartholomew on Wed., Dec. 30.
We have finished rearranging some of the collections. The New Books are
across from the Main Desk; Mysteries and SciFi are in Franz's Room;
Young Adult (YA) Books are on the shelves near the public computers
along the wall near School Street.
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.
