ROSWELL READS 2014
Someone Else's Love Story by Joshilyn Jackson has been selected as the Roswell Reads 2014 title. You can find a complete list of programs on the Roswell Reads page on our website. You may also download a Roswell Reads Program Brochure. Copies of the brochure are available in the library.
The annual Roswell Reads Photo Contest (for all ages) is underway. Details are available on the Roswell Reads page.
The Roswell Library is honored to once again participate in Roswell Roots, a festival of Black history and culture. Programs held at the library can be found on the Library Programs page. A complete list of Roswell Roots programs can be found on the City's website.
Check out what's happening at the library. Visit the Library Programs page to see a complete list of winter and spring programs. Story times will start again in early February.
We sponsor two books clubs at the Roswell Library. To learn more, visit the Noonday Nosh Book Club page and the Mystery Readers' Book Club page. Selections for the Mystery Readers' Book Club have changed because the January 28 book discussion was canceled due to hazardous weather. Be sure to check out the archives for each group to see what they've been reading over the years.
Check out our membership brochure. The brochure describes some of the projects we've done over the years, as well as details about levels of membership, annual dues and a membership form. It's the best bargain in town.
The Friends are always looking for donations. Acceptable items include fiction and all kinds of non-fiction books, DVD's, CD's, and videos. We also accept magazines: regular magazines (no matter how old they are) and business/news magazines up to 4 months old. We are not able to accept Encyclopedias, stained, or damaged items. Donation bins are located in the library's lobby. Thank you!
WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
The purpose of the Friends of the Roswell Library is to provide financial assistance to the library, to promote the library as a learning center for all citizens in the community, and to act as an advocate for improved library services.
