LIBRARIES
TRANSFORM
Dear Friends,
Over this past year, the phrase Libraries Transform has
been ubiquitous for us at the Nashville Public Library
Foundation. Each month, we have highlighted the
transformative impact of Nashville Public Library upon
the communities we serve.
Transformation happens every day at library branches
throughout the city with programs that foster civic
conversation, nurture curiosity and confidence in
children and teens, and cultivate lifelong learning.
As I read through these pages and reflect upon all
the ways I’ve seen NPL and NPLF change Nashville
for the better this year, I’m especially thankful for
you – our patrons, advocates, volunteers, and friends
– for making it all possible with your generosity, your
energy, and your dedication to our community.
This year, we were thrilled when Friends of the
Nashville Public Library officially joined forces with
the Nashville Public Library Foundation, maximizing
our collective power to engage more community
supporters to expand the library’s reach across the
greater Nashville area.
In addition, we continued to celebrate the legacy
of Margaret Ann Robinson, as the Endowment
established in her honor hit the $1M milestone.
Through this funding, the library that Margaret
Ann loved will continue to thrive for years to come.
The following pages tell our story, highlighting the
dynamic and diverse programs that the Foundation
is able to fund throughout the year. We are proud
to showcase the many ways in which the Nashville
Public Library brings our city together to learn, to
grow, and to connect.
Because of your support every step of the way, our
Library can transform us all.
Sincerely,
Shawn Bakker,
President, Nashville Public Library Foundation
