Friends of the Rochester Public Library

Phyllis Hodgson

The Friends of the Rochester Public Library raise funds to expand the library’s collections and programs, support special projects, and promote awareness through community involvement.

Funds come mainly from membership contributions, special events, and the sale of donated books at the Friends' Book Store, the sale of books online, sales of "special and unusual" books and through four large auditorium book sales held throughout the year.

We help keep the library strong by being an active part of the community!
