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, 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!
