Friends of the Library

Events & Services
The Friends of Rowan Public Library help make special things happen at the Rowan Public Library. You might be most familiar with the annual book sale, a great bargain sale with all kinds of books. You might even know about the Friends’ Best Seller Rental program which provides extra copies of best sellers for a low weekly rental fee. We have Rentals available in DVD and Book formats.
