Corporate Sponsors

Each year the Foundation and the Library partners with corporations, foundations and individuals to provide quality educational and cultural art programming that involves thousands of people through-out the community. A partnership with the Library can provide your company increased visibility and you will be working with an organization known for its quality programs and services. Our programs are designed for all age groups, presented in Spanish and English and the majority of programs are presented at no cost to participants.

By sponsoring a program or workshop your company will help promote literacy, critical thinking, art and the humanities in Rockford.
