Happy Retirement to our much loved Library Director, Donna Norris!! After many years of serving the patrons of Rose Free Library, she has just 2 days of work left! Please stop in to the library either Friday, Dec. 27th from 3-7, or on Monday, Dec. 30th from 1-7, to wish her well. She will be missed by so many people, but all of us wish her the best!
Stop in to the library between now and Saturday, Dec. 21 to enter the drawing. This one is for all of our area children who come into the library, including teens. We have some wonderful new or almost new books that were donated to us by local patrons. The drawing is also available for adults to enter, for the children in their lives, and would make great Christmas gifts!
We have a wonderful book bundle drawing going on right now, through the month of November. Beautiful new or gently used books that were donated to us. These books are for grownups, lots of cozy mysteries and popular fiction. They would make great Christmas gifts! Stop in and enter to win, and while you are here, take a look at our FREE books in the lobby!
From now until November 27, 2019, all of our books, audio books and dvd’s in the lobby are free! We have something for everyone including fiction and non-fiction. Stop by to see what we have!
October 4-19, the Rose Free Library will collect non-perishable foods for the Rose Food Bank. This will be part of the Great Give Back, an event promoted by the Pioneer Library System,, as a way to become more engaged with our communities. Please stop by the library with your donations.
