About Us

The Friends & Foundation of the Rochester Public Library (FFRPL) is an incorporated, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public charity that conducts essential fundraising and provides valued programs to enhance and promote the Rochester Public Library. In May 2013 we finalized the merger of the Friends of the Rochester Public Library (formed 1953) and the Rundel Library Foundation, Inc. (formed 1989).

To learn about the many arts/cultural/educational programs the FFRPL provides to the Library and the community, please see our Programs & Events pages.

The Friends & Foundation of RPL raises funds through:

  • gifts to an annual fundraising campaign
  • special project grants from corporations, charitable foundations, government sources and individuals
  • earnings generated by a permanent endowment/investment fund
  • planned gifts made through wills and trusts
  • income from the sale of books and library related items through the Library Store, both onsite and online
