Invest in Imagination and Ideas
Libraries make visions possible, but not without our active support. As the Information Revolution continues, people in our community will depend more and more on knowledge for their livelihood. The Libraries are a critical piece of our economic infrastructure. To keep pace, however, the Libraries will need to invest in new technology, develop new services, and expand its facilities to reach all of the people of Rapid City.
Your tax-deductible gift to the Libraries Foundation will help ensure the future for ideas and imagination in our Black Hills community.
Please join us in our efforts to bring together the resources of our community to enhance our public libraries. We strive to provide access to knowledge and enhance the quality of the libraries as a learning center for people of all ages.
