Looking Toward the Future

Stephen Welsh—a Duluth native, UMD alumnus, current Library Board member, and a retired educator, deputy sheriff, and ski patroller—chose to include a gift for the Duluth Library Foundation in his will to help ensure that our library will continue to thrive for generations to come.

“My bequest will support the library as a vital area resource,” Steve noted. “I am pleased to help perpetuate its many services through my membership in the Legacy Circle.”

We thank Steve for his support of the library through the Legacy Circle. Donor contributions—sustaining gifts or one-time gifts, designated funds, gifts of stock, bequests, and other planned gifts—help ensure the long-term vitality of the Duluth Public Library.
