Mission Statement

The Rolla Public Library seeks to enrich and strengthen the lives of the community by connecting individuals to ideas, information, and each other.

Please let us know how we can help you.


We don’t currently have any upcoming events due to Covid. We are still open though, and we would love to see you. 🙂

We have make and take bags. These are bags that holiday themed based on whatever the closest holiday is. This month of course, is Valentines day and we have several crafts in the bag. One for younger kids and one for older kids. All we ask is that you have a library card and check out a book to go along with the craft.

Books of the Month

February’s book of the month for adults (we’ll get the kids tomorrow) how about trying A Game of Thrones? You know that you like the television series, why not see if the books really are better? If you like book 1, you’ll be glad to know that we have the entire series.

The book of the month for young adults (teens) is Gray Baby. This is Black History month and this book explores what life was/is like for kids who survive(d) extreme racial violence against their families. It speaks to both their physical and emotional well-being. This is a fantastic book for the conversations going on in our country right now.

I’m finally getting to the book of the month for elementary children. Sidewalk Story is a fantastic story about the true meaning of friendship. It begins when young Lilly Etta sees her friend Tanya is being evicted from her apartment. Lilly Etta comes up with a plan to help her friend. Will it work?

Let’s build something together.
