Celebrating the Future of Rockport Branch | Community Groundbreaking

Cleveland Public Library is marking a new beginning in the Bellaire-Puritas neighborhood.

The Library will celebrate the start of construction on the new Rockport Branch. Library leadership, city and community leaders, and other dignitaries will attend the groundbreaking ceremony.

CBLH Design and Perkins & Will are reimagining the branch. The new Rockport Branch will include

  • An expanded children’s area and dedicated teen space
  • A new and improved Best Buy Teen Tech Center powered by Regency Technologies
  • 24-hour access to materials with Grab & Go Book Lockers
  • More community rooms
  • Improved technology and accessibility

The project is part of Cleveland Public Library’s 10-year plan to build or renovate branch libraries to enhance the visitor experience.

The current Rockport Branch will remain open during construction.
