Humans of

HENNEPIN COUNTY LIBRARY

Stories that highlight the importance of your donation.

"If you don’t have money, you can’t just go sit anywhere in this city. But at the library you can, and there’s no judgment passed on you."
"I think that this library is very important to the community. Those who come here and can connect will find the assistance they need for whatever the problem might be."
"They [my parents] saw the library as a place where you could change your life because there are all these resources."
