Rocky River Public Library is closely monitoring information about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our customers and staff is a top priority. As a result, the Library has closed until further notice.
We encourage patrons to take advantage of the Library’s many digital offerings. From the latest eBooks and eAudiobooks to streaming videos and music, we have rich content from Overdrive, Hoopla, Kanopy, and AcornTV that can be accessed from home. Our online learning platforms, including Lynda.com, Creativebug, and even The Great Courses Library Collection, provide exceptional opportunities to learn or build a new skill.
We will continue to use this page, our social media platforms, and email updates as needed to keep you informed of any changes that may occur. We are in this together and please remember to wash your hands!
