Property taxes pay only a portion of the Library's operating expenses. We depend on support from generous individuals like you to help fund our collections, computer and job training, Internet access, children’s story hours, thousands of literacy and cultural programs and so much more. 

Your gift helps keep these vital services FREE for the entire Rockford community.
