Rockport Public Library Book Sale
Bag-n-Go Event!

The Friends of the Rockport Public Library will be offering their first book sale of the year at the new Rockport Public Library!

This book sale will be held in the lower level of the library on two days: Friday, May 7th from 12-5:00pm and Saturday, May 8th from 10:00 to 2:00pm.

The Friends need to make room for upcoming donations, so we are offering our one-time Bag-n-go event. Once we have room, we can begin taking your donations once again!

The book sale will be based on bag size, so bring your bag, fill it up and pay one price as follows:

Small bags (provided-one per person) $Any donation amount.

Medium bags (like plastic grocery bags or small grocery bags) $10.00

Large Bags/Boxes/Backpacks: $20.00

There will be a variety of fiction, mystery, biographies, history, and children’s books. 

Come and tour the new library and come shop at the Friends event. We look forward to seeing you there!  All sales benefit the Rockport Public Library. Only cash or checks are accepted, and masks will be required.

Please contact the library with questions.

Pandemic Rules

 While the library will be open there are many new rules and restrictions which are intended to maximize safety for both the patrons and staff.

Patron Limit:

Based on the size of the building we can only have 10 patrons in the library at one time. Every person counts toward this limit, regardless of age. If one family member can come into the build to pick items for everyone we urge you do so.

Time Limit:

Since we can have so few patrons in the building at one time we have put a time limit on visits. We ask that you keep your visit to the library to 30 minutes or less.


For the safety of the staff and other patrons we are requiring that anyone that comes into the building wear a mask that covers their nose and mouth. We know this isn't the most fun thing to do. However, many of our patrons are in high risk categories and we all must work together to keep the Library safe for everyone.

Public Computers:

While the pandemic is ongoing we will only be offering one station for public computing. This is so we can clean the computer between each use. The 30 minute time limit is in effect for using the computer. If you need an exception, please see a librarian.

Social Distancing:

Please follow all social distancing guidelines in the Library and maintain a 6-foot distance from other people. Some rooms have specific occupancy limits due to the inability to practice appropriate social distancing in those rooms.


The Library will not be taking any book or magazine donations at this time. We will let everyone know when we will resume taking book and magazine donations.


We will be cleaning and disinfecting high touch surfaces at the Library multiple times a day. We encourage you to use our hand wash station and we will have hand sanitizer for patrons to use.

While we will do everything in our power to make the Library a clean and safe place for everyone, we cannot guarantee a germ-free environment. We urge you to take precautions both in the building and with items you have checked out, such as hand washing and not touching your face. We have increased our loan period to 21 days in case you want to quarantine items in your home for 72 hours before enjoying them.

We hope to get back to normal as soon as we can. Until then please help us help you by following the new rules. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to ask. We know this isn't fun, but if we all work together we can provide services and keep patrons and staff safe
