Friends of the Rowlett Public Library showed their love for the library recently by voting to fund the Summer Reading Program for 2018. This program helps combat students’ summer learning loss. There are many other inventive programs for children and adults that could be made available through Friends of the Rowlett Public Library with increased funding.
Here is how you can help!
