What is the Library Foundation?
The River Falls Library Foundation was established in the early 1990s after the Library received bequests from two estates.  The Foundation’s mission is to support the River Falls Public Library in its efforts to enrich lives and build community by connecting people with information, ideas, spaces, and opportunities while responsibly managing funds contributed to the Foundation.  The Foundation also raises and distributes donations and other sums for the long-range benefit of the River Falls Public Library.

The Foundation was instrumental in raising funds for the new building and for the completion of the lower level.  However, they have other ongoing projects such as summer library programs for children, adolescents and adults. 

The Foundation has also granted funds for the Main Street electronic sign and for one-time purchases such as the reupholstering of the window seat in the children’s room. 

The Foundation has helped fund and sponsor many popular events including classes, speakers, films, gallery exhibits, and family reading events.  These activities enrich the lives of library patrons and further enhance the library’s impact on the community.

The annual Summer Library Program, which has been underwritten by the Foundation for the past decade, has been successful with hundreds of participants of all ages.  Well-attended events for children are held over the course of the summer, and thousands of hours of reading are recorded.

The River Falls Library Foundation is doing important work in your community.  Please consider becoming a member.  The annual January 1-December 31 membership fee is only $5.00 for individuals or $15.00 for a family.  Membership forms are available in the library, or
