ROCHESTER, MI — The Friends of the Rochester Hills Public Library recently gave the library $105,000 in funds raised throughout 2011.
“We were very pleased with the amount we raised this year,” said Friends President Kathy Dorn. “It’s the first time in recent history that we’ve gone over $100,000. I want to say we did $85,000 last year.”
Library Director Christine Lind Hage said the money will be used to fund free public programs — for both adults and children — throughout 2012, and to purchase 70 new public computers. Congratulations to the Friends!
