Library General Fund

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. We appreciate cash donations of any amount. All contributions to the Rockport Public Library are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by the law.

If you would like to make set up a memorial fund for a loved one please contact the library.

Thank You!

You can request that your gift be added to the Marjorie B. Dodge Memorial Fund for Books. This fund, which honors the memory of the woman who was Rockport's Librarian from 1962 to 1992, makes possible the purchase every month of new books for adults and children.
 
With the approval of the Library Committee, your Endowment Fund gift can establish a named fund to generate income to be used for a designated purpose. Bookplates can recognize books purchased with income from a named fund.
