Rockport Public Library director steps down
Rockport — After eight years of service to Rockport Public Library, director Molly Larson will step down in the beginning of November.
In a letter to the Friends of Rockport Library, Larson wrote that she is “taking a break from my nearly thirty years of working in public libraries to pursue educational and personal interest.”
She went on to write, “I have grown to love this town, its citizens and of course our library patrons.”
The letter continued, stating she greatly appreciated the amount of work and advocacy by the library committee, select board and the taxpayers of Rockport and she looks forward to watching and listening to how the future of the library unfolds.
“I am especially proud and indebted to the wonderful staff and volunteers of the Rockport Library. It has been an honor to serve the community with this group of dedicated and, may I say, talented individuals,” she wrote.
Larson has worked at the library in Rockport Village since 2005 and has been a driving force behind bringing the community library into the 21st century with the introduction of technology-based research.
She has been a great source of information during the process of researching possible expansion of the library, according to previously published stories. Larson also applied for and received a $15,000 grant from the Davis Family Foundation to study moving the library to a new location.
Attempts to contact Larson for comment were unsuccessful.
