The Friends of the Superior Public Library donated $16,000 to the Superior Public Library.
“Our Friends of the Library members work diligently to raise funds for the library and to sponsor interesting, informative events for the public throughout the year,” said Library Director Sue Heskin. “The library staff and I appreciate their efforts and enthusiasm, and I thank the Friends for supporting our library.” Donated funds will be used to purchase books and other materials that will be available for patron use.
In addition to the $16,000 donation, the Friends of the Library has donated an additional $2,400 to the library for a display board and case, an easel, craft supplies, library decorations, and sponsorship of the Lake Superior Library Symposium.
“These donations are also deeply appreciated,” said Heskin.
Along with sponsoring the annual book sale, the Merry Little Christmas Book Sale, and the Book Corner, which raise money, the Friends of the Library sponsors a variety of programs throughout the year, and the Love Your Local Artist event in February.
These activities are free and open to the public. The Friends of the Library also decorates the library for the holidays and the Children’s Library for the Summer Reading Program.
