The Duluth Library Foundation hosted their 4th annual Olga Walker Memorial Awards at the Depot on Wednesday morning.


They recognized six people, whose generous support has made a significant difference at the library.

Karen and Royal Alworth were two of the recipients. Royal explained that the library serves him, his family, and the community in a variety of ways, helping him expand his horizons. "Even when I learn something I don't agree with," he added.

The other winners include: Muriel Cowan, Beverly and Louise Ellstrom, and Esther Linden.

The award is named after Olga Walker. She was a generous lady who designated the Duluth Public Library as the sole beneficiary of her will. Her gift became the seed money for the Duluth Library Foundation endowment.
