Online databases and resources provide outstanding reference material. The Alabama Virtual Library (AVL), highly recommended Web links, and online e-book links are accessible at all times.   The Alabama Virtual Library no longer requires an AVL card for home access by offering Geolocation that gives immediate access to the databases if you are located within the state of Alabama.  Students living within five miles of the state line may need to request an AVL home access card (free) from Mrs. Jones or stop by to obtain one from the Rogersville Public Library.

Knowing that avid readers are better writers and thinkers, the library staff has upgraded the library's collection with noted and award-winning titles through donations from the community.  As a result, recreational reading has increased in recent years.

The ability to locate, evaluate, and synthesize information for academic and personal use is one indicator of a person's success in life.  The library--in any form--provides the tools students need to be successful.
