The Friends of the Rocky River Public Library, a nonprofit organization founded in 1971, provides financial support and volunteer services to the library. Through membership dues and fundraising activities, the Friends make possible programs and services, furniture, and equipment purchases that the library could not otherwise afford. The Friends enhance the library’s ability to serve children, teens, families, seniors, and the whole community.
Everyone is welcome to join the Friends of the Rocky River Public Library: individuals, families, businesses, and organizations who value the library as a community asset.

One of the main objectives of the Friends is to support programs and initiatives of the library. Many of the programs for Children, Teens and Adults offered throughout the year for education and enjoyment are full or partially funded by our group. We hope that you and your family have enjoyed many of them in the past and will begin or continue to do so this coming year. Below is a list of some of the programs that the Friends have supported in the past. Be sure to look for the Friends logo next to supported programs in your issue of the Inside View.
