Rockport Public Library Temporarily Closed for Repairs in October

September 18, 2023

The Rockport Public Library experienced a burst sprinkler pipe during the brief but brutal cold snap on the first weekend of February 2023. Thankfully, emergency responders were on the scene within minutes, and the flood was quickly contained. While the library’s book collection was spared, the wooden floors took the brunt of the damage and need to be replaced.

In order to make repairs, the Rockport Library will be closed to the public during the month of October, beginning Monday, October 2. The anticipated date for reopening is in early November. Patrons are encouraged to check the library’s website (rockportlibrary.net) and Facebook page for construction updates and service announcements.

The book drop will be locked at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 30. If you are not ready (or are unable) to return the books you have checked out by that time, please hold onto the books and return them once the library reopens in November. There will be no fines or overdue penalties. The library urges you to stop in soon and stock up so that you have plenty of material to enjoy during the closure.

Rockport Library members also can bring their library cards to nearby Camden and Rockland libraries to check out books, DVDs, and audiobooks. A physical card must be presented at these libraries.

Patrons will not be able to request books through interlibrary loan after September 20 and through the duration of the closure. Library staff will not be onsite during the closure to answer telephone calls. However, staff can be reached by emailing questions to: rpl@rockport.lib.me.us.

The staff of the library appreciates your patience and will work diligently to return to regular operating hours and services as soon as possible.
