Thanks Community and City for supporting the Library
With monetary support from the City since 2014, the Library has met the State Library accreditation standards the last four years. Accreditation status allows us to apply for grants that provide new books, technology, summer reading programs, and other improvements to the library as well as possible funds for a new building.With continued support from the City of Rhome and our community, our Library will become the best in the County and achieve the dream of a new, permanent building/location for the library. 
As a 501 (c) (3) association, the Rhome Public Library, founded in 1960, appreciates all donations, which provide the funds for the library to continue serving the community.

Thanks to our 2017 Summer Reading Business Sponsors who provided $2,270.00 and various volunteer services and other donations.

We hope you will support the businesses who supported the Rhome Public Library Summer Reading Challenge for the children of our community.  Our business sponsors truly understand that an investment in the youth of our community is truly "building a better world."
