Seattle Public Library Foundation
Anne is the Board President of the Seattle Public Library Foundation. Founded in 1980 by Virginia Burnside, who was retiring as a member of the Seattle Public Library Board of Trustees. Virginia was frequently frustrated by the lack of city funds to support the Library and so she formed the Foundation with a couple of like-minded individuals. Anne’s association with the Library Foundation goes back 10 years when she made a contribution to the new downtown library and asked if they needed any volunteers. She was quickly put in charge of managing their Seattle Times contest that asked people to answer the question “Why do you love your library?” She personally read all 350 entries.
