Founded and endowed by local textile manufacturer George Maxwell in 1893, Rockville Public Library is
a privately owned non-profit 501(c)3 library serving the entire
town of Vernon, CT. Two-thirds of the library's
operating costs are paid through the endowment left by the Maxwell family and by library fundraising. The
remaining third is paid through the Town of Vernon.
We have begun our summer hours which means that the
library is closed on Saturdays until September.
