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.
The Rockport Public Library is a growing, people-centered community hub that goes beyond providing information and learning resources; it offers cultural enrichment, enhances collaboration, inspires innovation, forges connections, and sparks creativity and enjoyment.
Rockport Public Library is a center for lifelong learning:
We celebrate independent and collaborative learning through books and digital resources, people and programs, hands-on exploration and traditional research. Though our collection will evolve (and may include fewer stacks and more of resources we can’t yet imagine), our community’s need to access, evaluate, and understand information will grow. We are committed to ensuring freedom of access and providing materials and programs that educate, entertain, and inspire.
Rockport Public Library is a gathering place:
We embrace our diverse community and foster a sense of belonging and connectedness that bridges generations and socioeconomic backgrounds. Though the library will always be a refuge for quiet reading and contemplation, our community increasingly relies on it for social interaction, including informal conversations, small group meetings and workshops, and larger lectures and forums. We are committed to providing space that accommodates these needs and is comfortable, safe, and accessible for all.
Rockport Public Library is a community icon:
We epitomize the democratic ideals of inclusiveness and accessibility. Though this role is lofty, it is rooted in our concrete actions – including services that engage a diverse audience and partnerships that connect our community – and in our physical space – which reflects local architecture and is accessible to all. We are committed to serving as an archive for Rockport’s rich history and as a leader in building Rockport’s vibrant future.
