Loan policies

Rodman Public Library has many types of materials available for borrowing. The loan periods and fines vary depending on the type of material, which location owns the material and the type of patron who checks out the material. Check the list below for the loan policies of each library location.

You must be a registered borrower to check out materials from the library. Library cards are free but identification is required. A parent's signature is required for anyone under the age of 18.
