STATEMENT OF PURPOSE: This resolution will authorize the purchase of six backlight images to be installed at the Duluth Main Library by St. Germain Countertop, Corian and Casework Company in an amount of $10,390 to be paid from Library Special Gift Fund 0240. City of Duluth Public Library received donations to create "Art Risers" for the Main Public Library front circulation desk. These risers are made from an opaque material, manufactured by DuPont as Corian, the same materials used to construct the front desk in Year 2001. The Library provided the lithograph images and an artist "laser sculpts" the Corian. Installation is by a local, certified Corian installer. The only certified Corian installer in our region is St. Germain's. No other vendors were contacted due to St. Germain's Corian certification and the fact they were the original main library circulation desk installer.
