STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:  The purpose of this resolution is to authorize the acceptance, from time to time, of unconditional gifts from the Friends of the Duluth Public Library, a volunteer organization, which supports the library in a variety of ways including the annual book sale and which donates funds raised to the library for the improvement of the library and library services.


Recently the organization offered a donation of $7,500 to the library which the library would like to accept and it is expected that further donations are likely to be made during the year.
