2021 A NNUAL

REPORT


Dear Friends,

Coming out of 2020, we knew 2021 would be like nothing we had ever experienced. There was still much uncertainty throughout our world due to the pandemic and economic climate. We did know one thing for certain, the members of our community were supportive and engaged in library efforts. Last year proved to be your most generous year in our now 40-year history. We continue to be amazed by your generosity. Your gifts continue to make a difference for each and every person in Shawnee County. Throughout this publication, you will see a snippet of the impact you’ve made. On behalf of the hundreds of thousands of people who benefited from your support, THANK YOU!

STEPHANIE HALL FUND FOR SNEAKING LEARNING

Established

Stephanie Hall was passionate about learning, literacy, and FUN. Stephanie served as a planner, instigator, and risk taker during her 20+ year time with TSCPL prior to her untimely passing in 2021 at the young age of 44. Her family chose to have memorial funds sent to the Library, honoring her legacy by benefiting the community and work she so loved. Stephanie loved that people could learn things while having fun. “Who says learning has to be boring?” The fund will serve the community through benefiting staff training and/or any of the Topeka

and Shawnee County Public Library’s public programming that can be deemed as sneaky learning. What is sneaky learning? Sneaky learning feels and looks like play to the outside observer, but skills and lessons are being learned through play and fun.


LEAVE A LITERACY

Leg a cy!

Great libraries are a product of caring communities. The Library Foundation supports the library by accepting funds to enrich, not replace, traditional tax-based support for strategic library initiatives. Through their foresight and philanthropy these generous donors have made an extraordinary commitment to the Topeka and Shawnee County Public Library’s future. Want to include The Library Foundation in your legacy? Just use the following language in your estate plan.

A MESSAGE FROM THE TOPEKA & SHAWNEE COUNTY PUBLIC LIBRARY CEO:

NON-PROFIT ORG U.S. POSTAGE

PAID TLC

MARY PYKO Every day lives are transformed because of their relationship with our library. It could be a wonderful story time in our Kids Library, a new skill acquired through technology classes, an opportunity to listen to a nationally recognized musical performance or a moving art experience while exploring our Alice C. Sabatini Gallery and Reed Studio. All these unique and enriching experiences and spaces are possible in part through your contributions to the Library Foundation. We could not be the amazing library we are without all of you. Thank you!
