Your Membership support is VITAL to the Friends of the Rochester Public Library. We are very grateful to all of you who continue your partnership with us by renewing your annual membership. Please consider joining, or making an additional donation during these holiday seasons, especially in this challenging economy. The Friends’ operating budget comes from your tax-deductible contributions and other fund-raising activities.  With your help, the Friends enhance library offerings by:
  • Promoting early childhood literacy with Read with Me book bags for babies
  • Sponsoring programming for children, teens, and adults, such as the visiting author series and providing prizes for the summer reading program
  • Operate the Friends’ Used Bookstore which contributes proceeds in
                  excess of $50,000 annually to the library’s collection
  • Directly support library services and enrich our community
Volunteers help patrons at the Rochester Public Library and the surrounding communities in the following areas: the Bookstore, homebound services, social networking, and more. In 2010, the Friends’ Bookstore contributed $52,000 directly to the library allowing them to purchase additional books, DVDs, and other items. We continued this in 2011!
In this time of economic austerity your membership dues  or donations are more important than ever to help our Rochester Public Library.  Your dues provide you with these personal benefits:
  • A 20% discount on used materials purchased in the Friends’ Bookstore
  • Early admission to the RochesterFest booksale and other special sales
  • Four newsletters per year, whether mailed or electronic. By providing your e-mail address we save printing and postage costs
