You can also leave a lasting gift to the community by including the River Falls Public Library in your estate planning.

River Falls Library Foundation

The River Falls Library Foundation provides funding and support for projects outside of the scope of the library’s regular budget.  The Foundation has played a major role in all the library’s building projects, including the current building (1997), lower level construction (2003), and the 2009 remodeling project.  They also provided half the funding for the electronic signboard.

The Foundation underwrites the cost of the children’s annual Summer Library Program, funds library technology purchases, financially supports programming and gallery exhibits, and purchases new bestsellers, as well as other projects as requested by staff.  The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization.  Annual membership is just $5 for individuals and $15 for families.
