Annual Report

Endowing Library Excellence for Tomorrow

201 1

Du Lu T h Sa i D Y E S!
The year 2011 turned out to be crucial for the Duluth Public Library. When state funding to the city was dramatically reduced, the fate of the West Duluth and Mt. Royal branch libraries hung in the balance. Plans to shutter them as of January 2012 were on the drawing board. The main library, which had been belt-tightening for years, was surviving on a shoestring. The city parks were also suffering from a shortage of funding. When the city proposed a referendum asking citizens if they wanted to create a dedicated parks fund--which would also make it possible to re-designate existing general fund dollars for library operations-library advocates sprang into action. In the fall, members of the Duluth Library Foundation, the Friends of the Library, and the Library Board pulled together. They coordinated fundraising and publicity efforts with parks advocates. Working as a team, they urged the citizens of Duluth to pass the Parks Referendum, using information tables, street theater, mailings, and fliers. The referendum passed overwhelmingly. This was a shining moment for Duluth, a city that treasures its libraries. The Duluth Library Foundation is pleased to have supported the referendum and to have been involved in promoting the cause of the library.

Participants in our new Sustaining Donors program make a difference by making biweekly or monthly contributions to the Duluth Library Foundation. Jarrow and Elizabeth Wahman and their daughters, Veronica and Sasha, were among the first to include themselves in this group. Rather than buying a movie or book and putting it on their shelf, the Wahmans donate to the Foundation so that the library can buy the movie or book and everyone can use it. I want other people to be able to have the same opportunities that I do, said Jarrow. The library is the greatest thing going for the community. He and his family are making an investment in the future of their community. The Foundation is pleased to recognize the regular contributions of the Wahmans and other sustaining donors.

The next time you look up a word in the Oxford English Dictionary, you might thank the Duluth Public Library. Thats because one of the freelance contributors to the OED, Alan Hartley, is also a regular customer at the library. I edit material and do research for three publishers: Brill, Oxford University Press, and Fanack.com. My work for Oxford involves, among other things, providing historical material for the Oxford English Dictionary, said Alan. Alan makes regular use of library resources, particularly the interlibrary loan program, which allows him to obtain the research materials he needs from all over the nation. I am especially grateful to the interlibrary loan staff for all their efficient help over the years.
Alan Hartley

Last year, Alan made a donation to the Duluth Library Foundation in appreciation for all that the library has meant to him and in the hope that the library will be equally important to others in the future. His work in Duluth influences how people use English around the world. His generous gift to the endowment will continue to give over time, allowing future generations to use the library, even as he does.

Greetings, Donors and Friends: The communitys support was essential for the librarys success in 2011. Thank you for passing the Parks Referendum last fall, which enabled the library to increase its service to the community. The Duluth Library Foundation collaborated with fellow library advocates and parks people to help make it happen. Our permanent endowments total assets of $765,904 at the end of 2011 reflected the difficult market weathered by the economy as a whole, but at the same time annual donations and grants increased. Each year, the Foundation returns up to 80% of the endowments earnings directly to the library, reinvesting the remaining 20% for future growth. For 2011, the Foundation contributed $21,790 to the library. As part of its contributions, the Foundation continued to support the One Book, One Community reading project.

Terry Teich

Through the Foundations efforts with like-minded organizations, additional library services were positively impacted in 2011. The librarys e-reader program was launched and expanded with the support of the Duluth Library Foundation and five other local organizations. In the childrens section, dozens of new toys, dolls, games, and puzzles have replaced worn-out materials thanks to a grant from the Duluth Legacy Endowment Fund that was secured by the Foundation. The Foundation plans to continue building community partnerships to further enhance the librarys services and programs. Above all, your donations are essential to continue to sustain the library by bolstering our permanent endowment. As you consider your charitable giving, explore our options. Become a Literary Lion or corporate/individual donor; offer an honorary gift or a gift in memoriam. New options are to become a Sustaining Donor, making a monthly donation to the Foundation that is automatically deducted from your checking account or credit card, or to join the Legacy Circle, which will allow you to designate the Foundation as a beneficiary in an estate plan or will. Your gift today will perpetuate library service for the future. As the library evolves, the Foundation will be there to sustain it. We hope you will continue to be a partner in our efforts.

Terry Teich, President, Duluth Library Foundation Board

In 2011, the Duluth Library Foundation worked with community partners for the benefit of the Library. The Foundation secured a grant from the Duluth Legacy Endowment Fund to replenish the toys, dolls, games, and puzzles for children to check out or play with at the main library. In addition, the librarys e-reader program was funded completely by donated funds. The Friends of the Library and the Duluth Legacy Endowment Fund provided grants to launch the program. Altrusa International, Essentia Health, and the Junior League of Duluth, working with the Foundation, provided funds to expand the project. E-readers make reading easier for those who need larger print and those who find print books too heavy to lift.

Representatives of organizations that donated funds to launch and expand the library e-reader program include Donna DeToffol, Mary Schlosser, Carla Powers (library manager), Dan Markham, and Virginia Katz. Not pictured: Sister Kathleen Hofer.

These grants help keep the Library a place of equal access for all. The Library spans the digital divide by providing electronic, computer, and internet access for everyone and it has toys, too!
