Duluth Library Foundation Raising Money During Second Annual “Giving Day”

DULUTH, Minn. – After the city of Duluth laid off 25 library technicians on Wednesday, the Duluth Public Library has announced its second annual “Giving Day.”

Although the library is temporarily closed, the Duluth Library Foundation is asking for donations.

The staff said that they want to make sure the public still has the resources they need during the Covid-19 pandemic. The fundraiser also supports the library for years to come.

“It’s all online and through the mail,” Duluth Library Foundation Executive Director, Patra Sevastiades said. “We’re reaching out to the community and asking them to help us reach our goal of $20,000 for the Duluth Public Library by midnight tonight.”

The library will also be offering curbside pickup of books starting on Monday, April 27th.
