The Rockport Public Library offers outreach services for local residents who are unable to go to the library. The Outreach Librarian provides regular, large-print, and audio books as well as periodicals and videos to home-bound residents of Rockport. Library materials are picked up and delivered on a schedule that is adapted to individual needs. The Outreach Librarian is responsible for checking out, renewing, and returning all materials. Therefore, no overdue fines are assessed to residents using this service.
We have space to add some new folks to our list. To arrange for outreach service for yourself or someone you know, please call the library at 978-546-6934.
For people who are visually impaired, the outreach program offers a variety of Talking Books and the player to go with them. Andrea Nichols, Rockport's outreach librarian, can assist people who have questions about eligibility for and enrollment in the free national library program of recorded materials for blind and physically handicapped persons, which is administered by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), Library of Congress. If you or someone you know could benefit from the Rockport Public Library Outreach Service, please call the library at 978-546-6934.
