About the branch

This branch is conveniently located in downtown Rolling Prairie within walking distance of Rolling Prairie Elementary School. Completed in 2017, this beautiful library features a fireplace and cozy reading area. Read a newspaper or a magazine and enjoy the comfortable seating areas well lit by the many windows and skylights.

Children will be delighted with the activities, iPad, and two early literacy computers in the Play, Grow, Read! area where they can practice the early literacy skills of reading, writing, singing, talking and playing.

Two study rooms and a meeting room are available for public use. The study and meeting rooms contain tables, chairs and flat screens for connecting laptops and Apple devices. During the warmer months, you’ll enjoy the outdoor umbrella tables and benches. Bike racks and ample parking make it easy to park your vehicle.

Library staff will gladly help you discover the branch’s collections, which include books, audiobooks, music CDs, DVDs and magazines for all ages. Staff can also help you navigate the online catalog and show you how to use the library’s eResources, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, TumbleBooks, and databases.

Services at this branch include no charge notary public service, public photocopier, fax service, and scanning. An outdoor book drop is available for convenient after hours returns.
