Your Library Card allows you to take advantage of all 21 libraries in our four county system.

Books and audio tapes are checked out for 3 weeks, with the exception of best sellers or books in high demand. These are checked out for 1 week. Fines for overdue books and audio tapes are $0.10 per day for Children and $0.15 for Adults per book.

Videos are checked out for 2 days at no charge. Fines for overdue videos are $1.00 per day per tape.

Books and tapes may be renewed by phones to avoid fines. Materials, unless on Reserve List, may be renewed twice. Call 469-1481 during regular Library hours or call 825-5450 any time for our automated service. (You must have a bar code and pin number to access your account).

The Library maintains Reserve Lists for material in high demand. If you wish to reserve a book, notify anyone at the circulation desk. You may also access our catalog on-line at and click on Rosie's Web to reserve or request a book from your home computer.
