If you’re not ready to go into public buildings yet, the Library will still be able to accommodate you with a continuation of Curbside Checkout any time the Library is open.
To initiate curbside checkout, log into your account on the Library catalog and place a hold request for items to check out. We’ll notify you when your items are collected.
Let us know when you arrive at the Library (or call before you leave) and staff will bring your goodies out to you.
Digital Access Library Cards
The Library is also offering temporary digital access library cards. To get a card, call the library at 972-412-6161 or fill out our online form. If you use the online form, a member of staff will email you a library card number within 24 hours. Digital cards are good for all of our online resources, and will expire after 3 months. Once they’ve expired, you’ll need to come in and get a regular library card.
If you have a question, Ask a Librarian. Library staff is here to help. A Rowlett Public Library card provides access to over 50 TexShare databases. And even when our doors are closed, you can join our Online Book Club.
Any person needing an accommodation for a disability in order to access the benefits of the Library’s services, programs, or activities under the Americans with Disabilities Act should contact a Library manager by telephone at (972) 412-6161, by email at email@example.com or in writing, not less than five (5) working days prior to the program.
