Send us a postcard!
Have Book Will Travel!
Are you going to a special place this summer? Are you visiting your grandparents in Indiana or traveling to Florida?
Come pick up a postcard at the "Ask Me" Desk, bring it with you on your trip and then send it to the Roselle Public Library from your special vacation spot. We will hang the postcard up on the wall for everyone to see.
I wonder how many postcards from places around the country or around the world will be hanging on the Library walls this summer!

It's starting soon!
Have Book-- Will Travel
Summer Reading is coming fast! Are you ready?!?!?
Pick up your reading log starting on June 3rd. You can come upstairs to the "Ask Me" Desk or go straight to the summer reading table by the magazines downstairs. Teens, adults and families can sign up at the summer reading table as well!
This year kids from birth through 6th grade will read 12 hours! Every 15 minutes that they read they color in a new character on their book log. Kids can stop by once a day to check in to log minutes and get a raffle ticket. Or, if you prefer, check in every 3 hours that you read and pick up your prizes. Everyone who finishes receives a free book and a prize bag. We know you can do it!
Are you ready to meet your reading goal?

We have all kinds of new books that came in within the last month. Fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, playaways... So many books! There are a few ways to find some interesting reads (new or otherwise) at the library.
- On NoveList, a Library database, you can search for books by genre. You can even look for books that are similar to your favorite book! You can access NoveList at home or in the library.
- Go to the Good Books page on the Library website to check out our Blogger Book Club or see a list of new books that are available.
- Read a review written by a Roselle Librarian on the Blogger Book Club. We have read some great books this year!
