Rolla Public Library Has Thousands of Titles
You can find more than a good book to read at the Rolla Public Library.
You can find a good book to listen to on tape.
Or, you can find scores of magazine titles - even check them out if they're not the current issue.
You can check out record albums, compact discs, and videos.
Of course, if you want a good mystery or an informative history book, there are plenty of those too, and more.
The Rolla Public Library has approximately 50,000 titles in its collection, including hardbound books, softbound books, records, cassettes, videos, and magazines. And the number keeps growing each year.
The library is open seven days a week, including 1:30-5 p.m. on Sundays.
Weekday hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
If you live in the city limits of Rolla, you pay taxes and are entitled to a library card. If you live outside the city limits, there is a minimal charge for a family library card.
Thanks to the leadership and work of the library board of trustees, chief librarian, the staff, and the Friends of the Library, the Rolla Public Library is emerging as one of the best libraries in the state.
The library has the collection catalogued on a computer, so you no longer must search through an unwieldy card catalog.
The library also has a basement meeting room and a storage room, thanks to the Friends of the Library.
Speaking of the Friends organization, watch for announcements about that group's annual spring book sale.
You can become involved with the Friends of the Library by joining at one of the membership levels. Membership has its privileges: you'll get a chance to go through the book sale offerings the evening before the sale shelves are opened to the general public.
The library also has an after-hours book drop.
