Rockville Public Library

The Friends of RPL is a voluntary organization under the Library's non profit status.
The mission of the Friends is to advocate for the library, raise much needed funds for the library, and sponsor programs and special events at the library.

Projects in which the Friends take part include:

  • Assisting in the preparation of the library's Annual Appeal mailing
  • Organizing books and videos at the Book Nook in the library
  • Supporting children's and adult programming
  • Annual Holiday Cookie Sale in December
  • Providing refreshments for events such as book discussions
  • Purchasing museum passes for RPL card holders
New members are welcome at any time. Dues are flexible and begin as low as $5. If you are interested in joining, please pick up an application at the library or call (860) 875-5892, x100, and request that an application be mailed to you.

You may also "sample" a Friends meeting and see if you would like to join. Brown bag luncheon meetings take place the first Thursday of most months from September through May at 12 noon in the Community Room on the main level of the library. Beverages and dessert are provided. In June, the Friends have a year ending get together. Meetings and program notices are sent out by email blast or in the Reminder or JI.
