The Alexandria Society

($5,000 +)

 

The Library of Alexandria, Egypt, was constructed in the 3rd century BC. The Library’s vast holdings of papyrus scrolls made it one of the largest and most significant libraries in the ancient world. Much of the library’s storehouse of knowledge was destroyed by fires set by Roman invaders.

The Carnegie Society

($1,000 -- $4,999)Andrew Carnegie was one of the most famous American industrialists of the late 19th century. A Scottish émigré, he settled in Pittsburgh where he eventually focused on steelmaking. In 1901 he sold his mills that were combined with others to form U.S. Steel. Carnegie devoted much of his fortune to philanthropy including the establishment of almost 1,700 free public libraries in the United States. Carnegie believed that, “A library outranks any other one thing a community can do to benefit its people.”

The Franklin Library Company

($500 -- $999)

 

Benjamin Franklin was a printer, statesman, and scientist. He also formed the first lending library in the United States in 1731. Subscribers to the Library Company of Philadelphia each contributed money to purchase books that they then could share among themselves. Books were rare and expensive, and such sharing expanded access to more books than an individual could afford. This system later evolved into the free public libraries we know today.

The Dewey Book Club

($300 -- $499)

Melvil Dewey was influential in the development of American libraries in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He is best known for his work on a system for classifying books that would make it easy to organize and find those books on library shelves. The Dewey Decimal System was copyrighted in 1876 and is still used as a way of organizing books by knowledge area. Dewey was also a founder of the American Library Association.

The Mary E. Ahern Club

 ($150 -- $299)

Mary Eileen Ahern is considered a leading figure in the modern library movement. She was an active organizer of libraries and focused especially on small rural libraries. Ahern edited a journal, Public Libraries, that provided information and advice for new librarians. She was a strong advocate for the role of libraries in educating the public arguing that the public library “is the broadest of teachers, one may almost say the only free teacher….it is the only real people’s college.”
