Rochester Hills Public Library Surpasses 2M Circulated Items

The Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL) is proud to announce that over 2 million items have been checked out by the patrons and community members of Rochester Hills and Oakland Township.

Over the last few years, the Rochester Hills Public Library has dedicated a large portion of our energy towards increasing our collection size and adding unique items not found anywhere else. This includes e-materials like digital magazines and books, which have been checked-out over 100 thousand times by our patrons.

The library has also added items like board games and adventure backpacks to our collection. The adventure backpacks include themes such as bird watching, knitting, and even The Walking Dead. With a door count of over 30 thousand patrons per month, we’re always looking for new ways to make coming to the RHPL an exciting adventure of discovery.

“Our community Bookmobile is also instrumental in allowing our community to benefit from the library even if they do not have the luxury of transportation to our main branch,” said Manager of Outreach Services Mary Davis. “Over 50 thousand items have been checked out at one of our many book-mobile stops, and another 25 thousand at our Mini-branches.”

After this milestone, the Rochester Hills Public Library ranks fifth in the state in circulation numbers, making it one of the largest libraries in all of Michigan.

“We’re extremely proud to contribute to the Rochester Hills and Oakland Township community by providing free and educational materials, as well as some materials unique to our library,” said Rochester Hills Public Library Director Christine Lind Hage.
