you to the Residents of the Superior District Library Communities
On Tuesday, August 4th, residents voted “Yes” for the
renewal of the 0.5 mill for funding the Superior District Library for
the next ten years. On behalf of the Board of Trustees and staff,
we thank all of you who recognized the important role our libraries
play in your communities. The Superior District Library, as the
Upper Peninsula’s largest public library district, serves as a
vital and valued resource through its eight affiliate locations.
Your generous support allows the continuation of our mission to provide
accessible information, technology and programs that enhance the
quality of life for users of all ages.
A big thank you is also extended to members of the Millage Committee
– John Schaeffer, Rae Klobucher, Allison Youngs, Melanie
Greenfield, and Susan James; to the many Friends of the Library groups
in the district who donated time and money; to all of the library
managers and their staff; to the Superior District Library Board of
Trustees; to the local papers who ran articles; to the residents who
wrote letters of support; to the Eagle Radio; and, to all of the other
volunteers who came out and helped get the word out about the upcoming
election. We could not have done this without everyone’s
help and support.
Finally, I am humbled by your overwhelming vote of confidence. It
is an honor and a privilege to serve as Director of the Superior
District Library. Because of you, we will remain a source of
assistance to all of our residents and continue to provide the
materials, programs and customer service you all deserve. As we
celebrate the 110th anniversary of library service at one of our
libraries this week, we look forward to continuing to serve the Eastern
Upper Peninsula for many more years to come. Thank you.
Lisa Waskin, Director
Superior District Library
