The library’s tentative opening date is June 29th. Please note we will have a limit on how many patrons can enter the library at one time, and masks will need to be on to enter. Please enter the library up the side ramp of the library and exit out the front door. Please note that the library has policies in place for your safety and the safety of staff. Your patience and kindness is appreciated as we follow our new procedures to keep everyone healthy. Just a friendly reminder the book drop is open now for your convenience. All book returns will need to be placed in the book drop before entering the building. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Rose Free Library will start accepting returns in our outdoor book drop on Monday, June 15th, 2020. Items may remain on your account for several days after you return them to the library, but no overdue fees will accrue. Current recommended safety protocols at our library include quarantining returned items for a set number of days. Items will be checked in by library staff once the quarantine period has passed.
Thank you for your patience and understanding while we navigate this unprecedented situation and begin to resume services in our community in a manner that is safe to all. We are currently making plans for re-opening, our library is following phase four, Reopen NY guidelines.
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!
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.
