Support The Library

Promote literacy, build community, and create opportunities for lifelong learning by making a tax-deductible financial gift, joining the Friends group, buying items from our Amazon Wishlists, or donating materials.

Why Make a Gift?
When you support the Rockport Public Library, you are providing crucial support for a wide range of library programs and services that receive little or no public funding. Public funding pays only a portion of the library’s operating expenses. We depend on support from individuals like you to support summer reading, adult programming, technology access, and so much more. Your gift helps keep these vital services FREE for all of Rockport.

Donations to Rockport Public Library are tax-deductible per IRS Code 26 U.S.C. 170(c)(1). Checks can be made out to the “Rockport Library Gift Fund” and mailed to the library. We will mail you a letter of acknowledgment and thanks.

For assistance and questions about donations, please contact Cindy Grove, Library Director, at (978) 546-6934 or by email at
