Welcome to the Rocklin Friends of the Library (RFOL) website.

 
The Rocklin Friends of the Library's purpose is to generate community interest in the library services and facilities. You can support us in this effort by joining RFOL, donating your gently used books, shopping our bookstore or by making a monetary donation. Your donations will help us to purchase new books, continue children's and summer reading programs and to support your library.

In talking with a founding member of Rocklin Friends of the Library, Carol Peterson, about the library's future. Carol made a very interesting statement, "Libraries change lives, libraries themselves are changing."

Yes, libraries are changing and the Rocklin Friends are working to keep up with these changes. In 2014, the Friends purchased ebooks, a digital sign where patrons can learn about programs and services at the library, and iPads for the literacy program.

Our Summer Reading Program branched out beyond reading to encourage future writers by providing writing workshops for children in grades 3rd through 6th. We are awaiting news about the Union Pacific Community Based Grant which will fund an AWE program for elementary school children to assist with homework and support the Common Core Standards.

Additionally in 2014, we distributed $10,000 in proceeds from our golf tournament event from 2013, which purchased new express books and ebooks for adults, teens and children. We created new fundraising opportunities through ReUseIt, Raley’s, SaveMart, Amazon Smiles and participated in Giving Tuesday on December 2.

We will continue to work hard to support our mission in 2015!


Thanks to all of you who volunteer and support the Friends. You are greatly appreciated!
