Interlibrary Loan


The Rockport Public Library participates in an Interlibrary Loan service (ILL). If you are looking for a book that is presently checked out of the Rockport Library, or we don't carry it, you can request that the book be sent to the Rockport Library from another library in Maine.

If you are searching our catalog and see that we don't have what you are looking for, simply hit the "Request" button at the top left of the screen. You will be prompted to enter your name and library card number. The Rockport Library will then notify you when your item arrives. It usually only takes a couple of days!
