Join us by donating today to support more books, e-materials, programs, and resources at Ramsey County Library.

At the Ramsey County Library Friends (Friends) our mission is to strengthen, support and advocate for Ramsey County Library's (RCL) seven branch library system. As an independent nonprofit, the Friends invests in libraries through fundraising, advocacy, and programming so that they, and the communities they serve, thrive.

The Friends have initiated, funded, enhanced, or expanded programs for all ages including the Summer Reading Program, Kindergarten Library Card Sign Up Party, translation services, drop-in computer and tech classes, a weekly teen maker space, Take Me Home projects and racial equity programming. We have also made substantial additions to the collection of library books and e-materials and conducted capital campaigns for library construction or remodeling.

At this critical time, your gift will empower your neighbors with the vitally important rewards of FREE access to indispensable information, education, and print and digital resources as we regroup and work to rebuild our futures together. Please help us continue this important work by sending your tax-deductible gift today. 

Thank you for supporting your library!
