Welcome to the Rockport Public Library
A small town library where everyone is greeted with a smile. Serving as your community-centered library for 100 years and counting! Explore our Future Planning process to learn how we'll move into the next century together.

Mission Statement:

Race Information

All funds raised from this event go to support the construction of the new Rockport Public Library. More than just a building that holds books, the new Rockport Public Library will be the community’s gathering and learning center. It will offer access to technology, digital resources, and meeting spaces, as well as print and electronic books. We anticipate opening the doors of our new home to the community in the late summer of 2020.
Our 5k Run/Walk starts in beautiful Rockport village and travels along the coast offering fantastic ocean views. The race starts at the Rockport Opera House, takes you down Beauchamp Point, and ends at Rockport Harbor Marine Park, where water and snacks will be provided. The harbor is a short walk from the start of the race. This event is open to runners and walkers of all ages and skills. Strollers are allowed, but be mindful of traffic as most of the race does not have a sidewalk.
Race day registration starts at 8:00am at the Rockport Opera House, and the race starts at 9:00am.
The 5K race is open to all, and registration costs $25 on race day or $20 in advance. You can sign up in advance at the library or online at  More information can be found on our Facebook page. Advance registration ends on Friday, June 21st.
