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.
When registering for a Rodman Library card, you must present a photo ID such as one of these:
We do not accept birth certificates as a form of ID.
If the ID does not have on it the address used on the library registration form, then the patron must also produce a utility bill, bank statement, or check (i.e., something of an official nature) which corroborates the current address.
All newly issued cards have a thirty-day probationary period. A new adult card is limited to three items, two of which may be non-print, during this time. A new children's card is limited to three books.
Library cards must be renewed every three years. Probationary status does not apply to renewals.

Don’t have a library card?
Rodman Library is now your place to access digital downloads even if you’ve never stepped inside our buildings.
Rodman Library now offers a digital-only library eCard for new patrons who would like to use our online services of over 520,000 titles but may not want to borrow physical items from our collections. With the library eCard, online patrons can borrow ebooks, stream videos, download music, listen to audiobooks, or access our digital databases. The library eCard is valid for five years and is only available to new patrons of Rodman Public Library.
In addition, if you have fines on your current, unexpired library card that prevent you from checking out books and DVDS, you can now borrow ebooks, stream videos and music, download audiobooks, and access our digital databases. The best part? There are never any fines associated with these checkouts. If your card is expired, you will need to contact the library to renew it.
