Redwood Area Library Foundation (RALF)

We are currently running our annual fundraising campaign.
If you have not received a letter by mail but would like to donate,
please stop in or send your donation to RALF at the address below.
We would love to have your donation go toward our
Outdoor Early Literacy Area!

RALF was created in 1992 to provide financial support for the Library that goes beyond traditional tax base funding. RALF was responsible for raising the funds for the new building.  RALF continues to fund capital needs of the Library that are outside the scope of the operating budget by conducting annual fund drives and by using interest earned on investments.

RALF collected over 700 recipes for a library cookbook called "Readers Cook".

An Endowment Fund was established in 1998 to provide a lasting legacy to the Library and local community. The earnings generated by the principal of the Endowment Fund will be used for land acquisition for expansion, building expansion, major capital improvements, major technology needs, and other extraordinary needs. Contributions are tax deductible if they are made payable to RALF. Donations made payable to the Redwood Falls Public Library are not.

Each year RALF conducts an annual fundraising campaign soliciting funds for technology needs, capital needs for the building and capital needs for the children, teen and adult areas of the Library.  Donations are accepted during the fund drive and all year long.  Donations or gifts may be dropped off at the Library or sent to:

P.O. Box 84
Redwood Falls, MN 56283

For  your convenience, you may use the Annual Fund Drive form. 

Members of the RALF Board are:

Sandi Swartz, President;
Pam Prouty, Vice-President;
Joyce Johnson, Secretary & Library Commission Representative
Gail Ripka, Treasurer
