Flint Public Library serves the 98,000 residents of Flint, Michigan from a large main library building on the Flint Cultural Center campus. Flint is a majority African-American city that suffers severe economic distress, with 41% of residents and 60% of children living in poverty.
The Library is undertaking an exciting transformation – from a regional reference library to a vibrant community le...arning center. Our vision is to be Flint’s go-to place for lifelong learning, so all our residents are prepared to Learn for Life. We are focusing our resources on three key service priorities important to Flint: Digital Inclusion, Early Literacy and Encouraging Interaction in a Community Space, the third of which recognizes the library building as a key resource for Flint residents.
The Library currently has an annual campaign of $105,000 and is building and cultivating a donor base to increase annual giving. A capital campaign to raise funds to renovate the library building is likely in the next three years.
Flint is a city facing many challenges, and Flint Public Library provides vital services to our citizens. If you understand the value urban libraries can bring to their communities and you want to do important work, join us!
