Updates From Library Director

During these unprecedented times, the Rogers Public Library, while closed, is continuing to provide services for you.  Due dates for materials that you have checked out have been extended until we are open again.  Library cards that need to be updated or renewed are being extended until the crisis is over.  The Library has migrated to a new computer system.  Please use the last four digits of your library card number as your personal identification number or PIN.  You will need this number to access many of our online resources.

We hope to implement online registration for library cards within a week.

Our exterior book drop is closed until further notice. There will be no fines accrued for materials that were checked out since March 16 until the Library reopens to the public.

During our closure, please find books, audiobooks, magazine, movies, and databases available 24/7 at www.rogerspubliclibrary.org. Below are examples of some the available resources:

Online tutoring is available from 8:00 a.m. until midnight through Tutor.com. You will need a Rogers Public Library card.

Unlimited streaming music is available from Freegal with your Rogers Public Library card.

New titles and additional copies of eBooks and eAudio books can be accessed through Arkansas Library2Go with your Library card. This includes over 4,000 Duke Classics that have unlimited simultaneous usage.

TumbleBook Library, Audio Book Cloud and Teen Book Cloud online products are available to anyone through our webpage (no library card needed).

The Library’s public Wi-Fi is available from many areas of the parking lot 24/7. Please remember to adhere to social distancing.

Look under our Research Page to find NewsBank, an online newspaper resource. Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette articles are updated daily.  A Rogers Public Library card is needed.

Downloadable magazines, audiobooks and eBooks can be found at RBdigital.
