As a “community hub” the public library serves as a place to not only check out library books at no charge (which is important because it insures that literacy is a part of every family regardless of income or status) but, also as a place to access internet technology and engage in community learning opportunities which enrichen individuals, families, and our city as a whole. Rogers Public Library, with its 115 year history, is a rich resource for our community.
The mission of the Rogers Public Library Foundation is “…to raise funds…to enhance the Rogers Public Library’s ability to provide enriching programs and services”. Every day, we see and hear stories from community members who have utilized our library to create success for themselves and their families.
A few examples are:
- Patrons who have used our computer lab to find employment,
- Young families who have participated in our programming to ensure their children are school-ready and are successful in school, and
- Senior citizens who regularly patronize our curated resources such as audio books and large-print books.
Thanks to our wonderful and generous donors, for without their support, we could not accomplish so much.
