Our Mission and Purpose

The Friends of Robert Trail Library is a growing organization of community residents whose mission is to share our excitement for literacy and life-long learning through enhancing library services and resources.  


We are a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization empowered to support the Dakota County Robert Trail Library.  All funds raised go to support the library with items not usually covered by their local budget.


Our purpose is:

  • To focus public attention on library services and needs.

  • To foster relations between the library and the community.

  • To encourage volunteerism and opportunities for funding.
