History & Architecture
Rockport opened in 1964 and features 9,200 square feet. The building was designed by the architects Hargett-Hoag Associates. The branch is composed of brick and stone with a steel structure. A large picture window dominates the front façade.
The Rockport Branch will be the site of the new Best Buy Teen Tech Center, an interactive, state-of-the-art learning center for teenagers. Cleveland Public Library was awarded a grant for this special project in 2017, and the Teen Tech Center is tentatively scheduled to open later in 2018. This new center will complement the Library’s ongoing work with digital literacy, hands-on learning, STEM education, and civic engagement.
