Who 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.
Meetings of the Board of Directors are held the third Tuesday of every month (excluding June & December).
