The Library can expect income from the fund starting in 2017 once the principal has a chance to generate interest. Additional donations to the fund are always welcome and can be sent to the Bayfield Carnegie Library or directly to the Bayfield Carnegie Library Endowment Fund at the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation, 222 E. Superior Street, Suite 302, Duluth, Minn. 55802.
“The idea is to open the area up a little bit with some new shelving in several locations and to enhance the entryway with special books or things we want to promote, while at the same time respecting the library’s architectural integrity,” said Don Albrecht, Library Board President.

January 2019: To date, we have raised over $45,000 for the pillar fund. In mid-February we will find out if we were awarded a grant for help to support the repair of the pillars and other projects. The total project cost for the pillars and other repairs—chimney, tuck pointing, painting, and retaining wall—is $203,000. We are also looking at other grant funder possibilities. Thanks to all who have supported this big campaign so far!
