Mary S. Stern Gives $1 Million To Library Foundation To Create Annual Lecture In the coming years, the Library will have a new annual program to fulfill its mission to connect Hamilton County residents with the world of ideas and information through the Mary S. Stern Lecture. This new annual lecture is supported by a generous gift to the Library Foundation’s permanent endowment. To help select the lecture topic and presenter the Library formed the Mary S. Stern Lecture Committee. Committee members are Sandy and Peter Stern, M.D., Vicky and Rick Reynolds, and Betsy and Paul Sittenfeld. We hope to hold the first lecture in late 2018 or early 2019.

“Our public Library is special. It has always been a place of inspiration and knowledge for everyone in our community—and it is important that it continues its work into the future.” - Mary S. Stern Mary S. Stern and her late husband Joseph. S. Stern, Jr., have continued to make lasting impacts on the Library. In 1957, Mr. Stern co-founded the Friends of the Public Library and was appointed to the Library Board of Trustees in 1961, serving until 2003. Upon his retirement, Library Trustees conferred upon him the honorary lifetime title of Trustee Emeritus, in recognition of his 42 years of service. Mr. Stern also donated $1 million to the Library Foundation in 2010. Those funds became the cornerstone for a permanent endowment fund. The Joseph S. Stern, Jr. Cincinnati Room at the Main Library is dedicated to Mr. Stern in honor of his support. For updates on the lecture series and more news from the Library Foundation, visit
