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:
Rockport Public Library is committed to providing the best possible free library service to all of the residents of the Town of Rockport. The library will identify and respond to the needs of our community of library users and seek to provide services that will meet these needs.

Our Fall Newsletter is out! You can find it by clicking here!

As of October 1st 2017 the Rockport Public Library will no longer fine patrons for overdue materials. The Library Committee approved of ceasing to fine patrons at their September 18th 2017 meeting.

This change in policy will:
  • Provide more friendly service
  • Facilitate the return of library materials by removing the fear of having to pay a fine
  • Encourage use of the library by those who might be worried about past fines
  • Streamline library procedures
To learn more about the Fine Free Policy of the Rockport Public Library please look under the Library Services Tab.


Background infromation you might find helpful when filling out the survey can be found HERE.
Please take a few minutes to share your opinions about the Rockport Public Library by completing a brief questionnaire.  We need everyone’s opinions to help us develop a library proposal that will best serve the entire Rockport community. 
In order to maintain strict confidentiality with your individual responses, a third party consultant, Portland Research Group, has been engaged to administer the questionnaire, gather the data, and analyze and report the results. Please be assured that only Portland Research Group will see your responses and all results will only be reported in total with those from other Rockport residents.
Please respond by Tuesday, October 10, 2017 so that Portland Research Group can analyze the results and prepare a report as quickly as possible to help keep the process moving forward.
To minimize town expenses and for your convenience, you can fill out the questionnaire online at: www.RockportLibrarySurvey.com - this eliminates unnecessary postage expenses and speeds up data processing. 

While the online link costs less and is more efficient, we understand that some people still like paper so please feel free to print the survey and mail it to the PO Box Provided or bring it to the Town Office or the Library and we will provide you an envelope to seal your response in and will mail it in for you. Print a copy

Thank you for your participation. We look forward to developing a proposal for the Rockport Public Library that best meets the needs of the Rockport community.

We can now take donations online!!! Support the Rockport Public Library by donating to the library’s General Fund. This fund does everything from buying the books to keeping the lights on and the internet running. We couldn’t do what we do without your generous support.
