All of our books are checked out for two (2) weeks you may renew them by phone or by coming in. New books may only be checked out for 2 weeks, 2 books only and may not be renewed for six (6)weeks. We know that this sounds harsh but if you wanted to read a new release you would not like it if somebody kept renewing over and over and took most of the newer books out at once. So please be understanding and realize that this is done for you the patron. DVDs my be checked out two (2) at a time for three days only.
Youth and Teen Services
We are trying hard to bring more young people into the library and show them the wonderful resouce a public library can be. We have updated may of our reading materials, we offer more drop in and do projects and as always we are here to help with homework.
Unfortunately, lack of space and money prohibits us from many of the newer things occuring in other libraries but we always try to make Roodhouse Public a fun, safe and informative place for our youth.
We love to hear from you and if you have a question please feel free to ask. If you want to know Englebert Humperdink's real name or how to properly prepare a mackerel drop us an e-mail or stop in, we will do what ever we can to find out what you need to know. We also have several websites that can help with taxes, jobs and various other things check them out.
The Library's Collection
We are proud of our collection. We have alot of the current books and most of the classics and many, many books in between. We have a great collection of railroad books, many magazines, and our nonfiction room is great! If we don't have the book you are needing or wanting to read we will do what we can to find it. We belong to the interlibrary loan system and can borrow books from all over. If you don't see it ask, we can help.
