Silent Auction Holiday Shopping Event

We are looking to find ways to provide the resources our community will need as they search for assistance, apply for jobs and research resources in this unprecedented time.

This auction is of vital importance as we know the funds coming in to our library are dropping due to lost city revenue. We are making every effort to keep staff, resources, and programs from being cut.

YOUR dollars allow us to offer the award-winning (and Nationally-Recognized) programs and services that our community depends upon, like materials, curbside delivery, home delivery, and online resources like digital books, audio books, language classes, genealogy and crafting tutorials as well as digital tools that allow individuals to connect with others and submit online applications.

All are welcome at the Rochester Public Library & everyone can find free resources to help navigate and better their life, even in the midst of difficult circumstances.

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, and serve our community, especially where there may be gaps in funding.

Rochester Public Library steps up to serve our community in every way we can. The wonderful staff has been answering questions from patrons as well as anyone who calls the city's COVID hotline and now we are answering calls to help connect students and their families who are experiencing hardship with food through the food bank's backpack program. The American Library Association has featured our innovative COVID-19 work and, three team members were recently awarded Minnesota Library Association's Above and Beyond Award!
