Reciprocal Borrowing

As a member of the Suburban Library Cooperative, we share a catalog and reciprocal borrowing privileges with other SLC libraries. Individual library policies apply to materials owned by other libraries so fines, fees and check-out periods may differ.

You can visit the catalog or call the Information Desk or Youth Desk to request an item from another SLC library.

Text Notifications

The Roseville Public Library can now send text messages to your SMS/text messaging-enabled mobile phone when your reserved materials arrive at the library, to let you know about overdues, or for bill notification on your account.

Check with your mobile phone carrier to find out if you will be charged for this service.    

To receive text notifications, register at the circulation desk.
