Books and Audiobooks check out for 3 weeks. (They can be renewed twice if the library has owned the material for at least 3 months and the item is not on hold for another patron.)
Movies, Magazines, Videogames, and Playaway Views check out for one week. (Magazines can be renewed twice and movies can be renewed once as long as they have not been placed on hold by another patron.)
Our library is part of a consortium of libraries called the NC Cardinal Consortium. If Rockingham County Public Library does not have the material you desire you can place a hold on materials from outside of Rockingham County.
Holds placed on items from outside of Rockingham County will take longer to arrive but will be shipped to our library free of charge.
Computers with Internet access and Microsoft Office 2013 are available for checkout with the use of a library card. Library patrons who do not have their library card with them can ask to have their records retrieved by name if they show a picture id.
Guests without a library card can be issued a guest pass good for that day only to use library computers if they show a picture id and sign the library's Computer Use Agreement.
Library users now have the abililty to make three-dimensional objects in plastic using a design that is uploaded from a digital computer file.
Any 3D drafting software may be used to create a design as long as the file can be saved in an .stl, .obj, or .thing, file format.
Patrons wishing to use the 3D printer must have a library card in good standing.
If you’d like to use the library’s 3D printer, bring your print file in a .stl, .obj, or .thing format with a completed “3D Printing Request Form”. Make sure to include all required signatures and bring the form to the Circulation desk during open hours. Staff will verify the form for accuracy and add the request to the printing queue.
Cost: 3D printing at the Library is $1.00/hour of printing with a minimum charge of $2.00.
Prints will be left as-is upon completion; finishing work (such removal of excess material) will be left to the patron.
