Are the Friends:
The Friends of the Duluth Public Library is a membership based
organization that assists with the development and promotion of the
Duluth Public Library and advocates its importance in the community.
Money raised at events hosted by the Friends is contributed to the
library and used to assist with the purchase of resources and
equipment such as books, database services and e-readers. In
addition, the Friends help fund library programs like the
Kaleidoscope Series, which is a free entertainment series for
children held throughout the summer in the Main Library Plaza; and
the Cabin Fever Reliever Program, which is a series of events held
throughout the winter for adults, teens and kids.
A board of directors oversees the Friends. Board members
Meetings of the Board of
Directors are held the third Tuesday of every month.
