Did you know...

that files can be burned to CDs or DVDs on Rod Library computers?  Use the built-in Windows functionality to handle a few files or the Roxio burning software (under All Programs) for bigger jobs.  If you get stuck, ask one of the library staff to help you!

The Browsing Room will be closed during Thanksgiving Break to allow the electrical contractors to replace the light fixtures in that space.
