Check out a hotspot!

Users of Roselle Public Library rely on their Library to borrow books, movies, music, and more – and now, users can even check out the Internet! Thanks to a donation from TechSoup & Mobile Beacon, library card holders can borrow a portable mobile hotspot for free Internet access for a week.

The hotspot is small enough to fit in a pocket, but powerful enough to connect up to 10 Wi-Fi devices simultaneously – smart phones, notebook and tablet computers, printers, cameras, e-book readers, etc. – for up to 10 hours of continuous use with bandwidth comparable to in-home high speed internet service. Smart phone and tablet users can save on roaming charges and minutes by using the Wi-Fi setting on their device to connect to the hotspot. The 4G LTE hotspot connects via the Sprint network so users enjoy long-range Wi-Fi, both indoors and out for hours of connectivity while on-the-go.

"This is the easiest technology ever," said one enthusiastic user.

Roselle Library card holders can check out the mobile hotspot for a week at a time. Place a hold on the hotspot through the Library catalog, or call 630-529-1641 for more information.
Roselle Public Library is located at 40 S. Park Street, Roselle, IL.

Look into your past

January is an ideal time to dig into your family history. Discover who's lurking in your family tree.

Your Library has everything you need to get started. Come in, browse and check out a few of over 130 books, DVDs and magazines about genealogy. While you're here, type your surname into Ancestry.com, the premier genealogical database, and see what comes up.

Or, sit back in the comfort of your home and search census information with the new and vastly improved HeritageQuest online.
Whether you are a beginner or an accomplished genealogist, your Library can help.

Roselle Public Library is located at 40 South Park Street, Roselle, IL 60172. For more information, call 630-529-1641.

Thank You - for warm hands and hearts!!

Thank you to everyone who took time from their busy holiday schedules to donate hats, mittens and scarves to help others have a warmer winter. This year the Library collected a total of 275 items which were donated to the Bloomingdale Township General Assistance Office (118 pairs of gloves & mittens; 107 hats; 49 scarves; & 1 hand warmer).

We collect donations throughout the month of December, but bring the first installment of donations to the Township in time to be included with their holiday food basket distribution.

We at Circulation really enjoy being able to watch as the tree becomes full; it’s so wonderful to witness the generosity of our community!Thank you!
