About Our Organization

Enhancing Lives

The Rogers Public Library Foundation was established in 1997 and continues its foundational vision of generating private-sector support to supplement tax-based funding for the Rogers Public Library. The result is improved collections, expanded programs, and enhanced services.

The credit for the Foundation’s impact belongs entirely to the people of Rogers and the surrounding community. Over the years, hundreds of generous individuals, corporations, and foundations have demonstrated their deep commitment to the area and the Rogers Public Library by donating to the Foundation.
