Services for Adults

The Adult Services section works hard to meet the needs of people from 18 years to senior citizens. Librarians and staff select the "best of the best' in books, and DVDs in English and Spanish for members of the community. We provide the newest DVD releases available anywhere, computers and WiFi for public use and, of course, great books and magazines in English and Spanish. Adult Services also organizes cultural events and outings as part of the library's services.

Immigrant Resources Know Your Rights

Know Your Rights

As our library mission states, “the library provides quality material for the public”, and for this reason, we have gathered updated information regarding information on Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and immigration enforcement. This information is also available in paper form at Rosewood Library. The links and information will be monitored and updated. 

Everyone living in the U.S. has certain basic rights under the United States Constitution. For example, you have the right to remain silent and you may refuse to speak to immigration officers.
