Who We Are
Duluth is a city of readers, perched on a rugged hill overlooking Lake Superior. For this city, which aspires to cultivate an outstanding quality of life for all residents, a robust public library is essential.
The Duluth Library Foundation was established in 1990 to enhance the life-changing work of the Duluth Public Library through private giving. Our donors have helped the library purchase books that inspire minds and uplift spirits. They have supported life-changing library programs that promote early literacy for our youngest children, STEM skills for school age children, a sense of fun and belonging for teens, and joy-filled, lifelong learning for adults. The Foundation and library work together, in a strong partnership, to determine where private funds will have the greatest impact on children and adults.
Support from generous donors also allows the library a capacity to respond more nimbly to the emerging needs of the community. It encourages library innovation, making the library a vital and responsive resource for the residents of our city.
We welcome your support of our library as it continues its work of informing, engaging, and connecting our community.
I Love My Library!
