The Roselle Public Library Foundation was created to ensure that the Roselle Public Library is not just another local library, but fulfills the needs of our growing community as well. The Foundation's objective is to enrich the excellent programs, services and facilities of the Library to meet the challenges of tomorrow. To this end, the Foundation solicits donations, grants, bequests of cash and property, and also seeks individuals willing to volunteer their time and services to the Library.
In addition, the Foundation has established an endowment fund to support the Library. This fund was created from non-tax sources as a supplement to the traditional methods of library funding. The Foundation also accepts designated gifts for specific library needs or programs.
A Big Thanks to the Foundation’s Generous Donors
The Library Foundation wishes to thank the listed individuals and businesses for their donations to the 2016 Appeal. With their support, the Foundation will be able to assist the Library with big ticket items, such as the anticipated roof replacement.

Why a Library Foundation?
A quality library is essential for a good community. It is a source of education, information and pleasure for residents of all ages. Many challenges and opportunities lie ahead for public libraries. Who could have predicted the changes in technology that have occurred in the past twenty years?
Even though the Library is a tax-supported agency, additional methods are needed to help fund its operation in order to maintain an up-to-date collection, while staying in step with technology. The challenges and opportunities of the information age require investment in the technologies that will allow the Library to achieve a leadership role for the community on the "Information Highway". Library computer links to local government agencies, schools, homes and offices will ensure that all citizens have access to this vital information resource. Whatever new challenges lie ahead, the Roselle Public Library must be ready.
Can we continue to make the Roselle Public Library that kind of library without your help? The answer is no. Tax dollars alone are not enough to provide the kind of library our community deserves, now and in the future.
