Roddenbery Memorial Library is part of the PINES Library system run by the Georgia Library Service.
PINES library cards are available to all ages! If you live, go to school, or own property in Georgia, you can apply to receive a FREE PINES card. Minors must have their parent or guardian present to register. PINES cards will work at hundreds of libraries throughout Georgia, allowing users to check out items from one library and return them to any other.
Item I want isn't available. What do I do?
If an item you would like to borrow isn't available, you can place a 'Hold' on it from another library and they will send it to RML for you. When it arrives at RML, you will receive a email, text message, or phone call. There is no charge for this service. See the video below for a step by step tutorial.

Accessible Statewide Services
The Roddenbery Memorial Library holds over 35,000 print and audio books, from beginning to advanced readers, including many Spanish language titles.
RML is a PINES library and shares books with most of the public libraries in Georgia. If there is a book that you would like that the library doesn't have, let us know, and we will borrow it from another library. Just ask a staff member about putting a book on 'hold'.
Patrons can request their own 'holds' by accessing their online account here.
RML offers a variety of childrens, teens, and adult periodicals that may be viewed or borrowed from the library.
Magazines may be checked out for 2 weeks and renewed twice.
