Rockport — The new Rockport Public Library has its clock. The clock was installed on July 23. Residents and passersby stopped to watch as the crew brought the clock up to the building and set it up.

The library is also progressing in multiple different ways. Roofers have completed the metal roofing on the west side of the building. The roofers continue to lay down the metal roofing on the east side of the building.

Trim has started to be put up in the program room. The windows in the children's room have been primed.

Priming has also started on the inside of the library. Heating and plumbing are still underway. The elevator shaft is currently being readied for installation in late July.

The intersection work is still underway. Maine Water has done work to improve the water system while the intersection is torn up. They are improving the system now to eliminate the need to tear up the intersection again at a later date.
