The physical building of Rodman Library may be closed, but it doesn’t stop the staff from kicking off an online “Reading Challenge” for all ages beginning on Sunday, April 12, and running through Saturday, May 23. Adults, teens and children are eligible to be entered into a Grand Prize Drawing for one $25.00 Amazon gift e-card per age group. Here's how it works.
Stuck inside? Looking for something to do? Why not catch up on some reading? Join us for the Stay Home. Read Together Challenge with categories for the whole family to enjoy.
In mid-November, Rodman Public Library will be joining the SEO (Serving Every Ohioan) Library Consortium. Making this move will provide our library users with access to items from 95 library systems at 241 physical locations throughout 49 counties across Ohio. This also means that the system that we use to check out your library materials, and that you use to search for items in our catalog, will also change.
