A very generous woman was honored Monday night for all she has done to help the Duluth Public Library. 

Katharine Coventry is 101 years young, and since 1998 has given $10,000 in donations to the library.  

That means she has reached the "Andrew Carnegie" level of giving and received a plaque with her name on it. Coventry was overwhelmed by the ceremony.

"I'm glad that there's so many others on the plaque with me, and I hope there will be many more because this library has everything," she said. "We're very fortunate."

Library officials say her gifts helped build up their videography collection.
