Director's Message

Your Library Director Welcomes You


School has started for the 15-16 year!! Where did the summer go? We want to invite you into our library to see all the services we offer to the public. We are small but we do offer several things other than books that you might find useful.

Copies, faxes, job hunting help, resume help, computers and microfilm. Those are just a few of the services offered. Our staff is helpful and if we don't know how to help you we will try to help you find some who does know the answer!

Residents in the City of Roodhouse limits can get a free library card. We require a drives licence or state issued ID and a piece of legal mail( rental agreement, medical card, utility bill) with your name on it and the correct address. Minor children must be brought in with a parent or guardian, and the information mentioned above. If you live outside the city limits the rules are a little different. Since you don't pay taxes to the library you will be charged and out of residence fee. Our fee is based on a formula provided to us by the IL State Library. At the present time our fee is $29.00. This fee allows everyone in your immediate family use of all the library services for one year.

Carole Wells & I look forward to meeting you!!
