The Rogers Public Library will be closed to the public beginning on Monday, March 16, until further notice, due to COVID-19.
In an effort to still provide services to our residents through the time of closure, the Rogers Public Library would like to remind the public that eBooks, downloadable audio and music streaming are still accessible online. You can find these resources on the library’s website at www.rogerspubliclibrary.org. As the library is still transitioning to the new computer software, the public is encouraged to call the library for help navigating any technical difficulties at 479-621-1152. Monday – Thursday 9:00 am – 7:00 pm & Friday – Saturday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Below are a few updates. These will be re-evaluated and adjusted as needed.
* Any library card that expired within the past year has been updated to expire on April 30th.
* Items that are checked out and due during this time have been extended until March 31st.
* No one will incur overdue fines during this time.
* Our old system is still sending out notices, so please disregard these.
* For now, be sure to use our digital services such as Library2Go, RBdigital, Tutor.com, Lynda.com and more. We will be posting throughout the week to highlight our services and others that may be helpful to our patrons.
* If you have not changed your PIN since we changed systems last Monday, it will be the last 4 digits of your library card number.
* If you have a student eCard, it is also available for online resources. Your PIN is the last four digits of your eCard number.
