It is under the direction of an independent Board of Directors  comprised of public-spirited citizens who volunteer their time, energy, and expertise.

    How to Build a Library

    Your charitable contribution supports the love of learning and the search for information that is at the heart of the Library's mission.  Every gift--regardless of amount--helps the Library to provide the strongest resource possible  for the community.

    How To Donate?

    Donations to the Endowment may be of any amount and are fully deductible to the extent permitted by federal law.  They may be in the form of cash, gifts of securities, or in selected cases, other gifts of value.

    Honor a loved one with a Memorial Gift. Memorial gifts will benefit the endowment and place the deceased’s name on a special plaque within the Library reserved for that purpose.

    Leave a Legacy.  Bequests are a valuable means of enlarging the endowment and they have an enduring value for Rockland’s Public Library and the people it serves.

    Donations may be sent to: R-PLEA / P.O. Box 18 / Rockland, Maine  04841
