Holiday Shopping Auction

Shop for the holidays while helping your local library! Browse gifts from local businesses who support our community and library! Please consider patronizing these businesses this season and throughout the year.

We need your help more than ever so we can purchase more books and materials and fund programs … like Wi-Fi enabled laptops for check out, giving those who cannot afford technology an opportunity to research, search for jobs, take an online course, make connections, send emails, or just browse.
ALSO… more books, as waiting lists are long & budgets are tight.

A huge THANK YOU to Wightman Brock Real Estate Advisors for underwriting this platform fees for this auction! This means bidder dollars will come to the Library Foundation! We are so grateful to Ron Wightman, Lynn Wightman, and Randy Brock for their investment in knowledge and our community!

THANK YOU for your kindness!

Pick-up will be at the Rochester Public Library, 10am-6pm Friday-Saturday, December 2 & 3.

Some items include delivery or can be arranged by email.
Please look at item description for details.

Special arrangements can be made in advance - email bkardock@rplmn.org


About Rochester Public Library Foundation

Thank you for taking the time to consider supporting the Rochester Public Library Foundation. We help our local library pilot innovative programs, provide engaging series, purchase new materials, bring in new technology, and serve our community, especially where there may be gaps in funding.

We recently funded a new awning for the bookmobile to keep staff and materials safe from weather and twenty Wi-Fi enabled laptops for checkout at the library, plus, of course... books and materials!! We were also able to partially fund the part-time social worker at the library, who helps connect people with resources to assist with housing, financial, legal, medical, mental health, chemical dependency, employment and more!!

Our Rochester Public Library always goes above and beyond to serve, doing so effectively and efficiently, measuring results & listening to our community every step of the way!!

We are proud to support our library and thank you so much for doing the same!
