Due to the increase of Covid-19 cases in Strafford County, the Rochester Public Library will take a step back in the reopening of Library services. Starting Tuesday November 24th, appointments for browsing will be suspended until the local coronavirus spread is contained.  A limited number of computer, copier, or Wi-Fi appointments will be available (masks are required for these appointments), and RPL to Go will continue to be available.


We are doing our best to provide services safely. The decision to restart other services is a local decision and will be made by the Library Director and the Board of Trustees. 

When we are able to restart more services, we will announce it online and in the newspaper.

We appreciate your patience during this time.


The Library will be closed

Monday, January 18th

in observance of
