Timberland Regional
Library Kiosk
at the
Rochester  Community

There is now a phone number for the Library - it is 273-9175, ext. 106

The long awaited Timberland Regional Library kiosk is now operational at the Rochester Community Library.  This kiosk is connected to the Timberland Regional Library's main computer, giving Rochester residents access to many of the library's features.  A "Grand Opening" ceremony was held February 23rd from 4:00 to 6:00 PM.  Notices of the Grand Opening were mailed to all addresses in the Rochester area. 

Here is a view of the Kiosk and some of its benefits.   Materials can be "borrowed' from the library by requesting their delivery to the Rochester Community Center.  There is also be a "return" receptacle at the Rochester Community Center where you can deposit those borrowed materials when you are finished with them.

New 03/06/06  Donations of good condition books, Video (VHS) Tapes, CD's, and DVD's are now being accepted.  You may deliver them to a librarian during regular hours at the library .   These donated materials will not become part of the Timberland Regional Library inventory.  They will remain in our Rochester Library for the use of local residents.

From the kiosk you can do these things.

When the books you have ordered are delivered to the Rochester Community Library you can check them out at this station.  There is a touch-screen display with a bar code scanner at the bottom left of the photo, a printer at the right.  You may enter your library card number either through the screen or scanner.  Your pin # then must be entered on the screen.  After you have scanned the book bar code, the printer will print out a ticket with the book name, due date, and other information for you.
