About the Friends of RHPL
The Friends of the Library is an organization that is dedicated to building a close relationship between the library and its patrons. We achieve our goals primarily through membership dues and fund raising.
Among the purposes of the organization are the following:
- Promote knowledge of and informed interest in the library’s functions, resources, services and needs.
- Encourage community participation in library activities.
- Raise funds for projects, activities or acquisitions in excess of those provided for by the general library budget at the discretion of the Friends Board of Directors.
- Provide support for programs for the extension and improvement of library services and resources.
