What do you think of when you think of our library?

Our library is filled with incredible books. Books that inspire, validate, and comfort us during all stages of life. But there’s more to the story of our library than books alone.

All-age social and educational enrichment programs tell another story, one of community and inclusion that reaches beyond the shelves.

Programs like Little Library Go, that bring the magic of our library to neighborhoods and groups all over our city; breaking down the transportation divide and serving families hit hardest by social and economic barriers. Because libraries always have been, and always will be, for everyone.

As we reflect on 2023, we honor all that our library offers, and all that your generous support makes possible. With your help, we can continue telling stories – in books and far beyond – making a difference in our community for current future generations to come. Thank you for loving our library, today and every day.

Help support our beloved library as it serves our community

In memory of L. Cecile Hilding Swenson, a generous donor will match your contribution,  dollar for dollar up to $5,000. Please consider contributing a gift by December 31, 2023. We can’t think of a better way to end the year.

P.S. You don’t need to wait until the end of the year to give! Help launch this campaign by celebrating Give to the Max Day, Minnesota’s giving holiday, with a gift by midnight on November 16, 2023!
