"Only those books come down which deserve to last. All the gilt edges, vellum and morocco, all the presentation copies to all the libraries will not preserve a book in circulation beyond its intrinsic date."

—Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-82) American writer, philosopher, poet, essayist

Your Library Director Welcomes You


It is the first day of spring!! Wow, it is about time. I think we are all sick of winter this year!! I love that it is light when I leave the library at night,that I can hear Robins singing, and kids playing in the park.

There have been some changes in the library hours, we are here everyday from 1-6 PM during the week and 9-Noon on Saturdays. We also have E-Books!!! You must have your own e-reader and a library card from Roodhouse and you can check out books for free!! This was made possible by a grant through Illinois Heartland Library System. Come in and see us and get started reading on your laptop, smartphone, ipad or e-reader today!!

Remodeling work on the library will be starting in April. Our building is old and in need of some tender loving care. I wrote a grant last year which will help us put some siding on the whole building, adding some new windows and a few more updates inside! Bear with us if we have to close a couple of days I promise it will be worth it!

I think that is all I have to share right now.

Keep reading! I will see you in the stacks!
