Support Our New Roof Fund!

The Shaw Memorial Library has been home of the Carlton County Historical Society since 1987. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, U.S. Department of the Interior National Park Service. The Shaw badly needs a new roof. It leaks.We need the new roof before winter! We are applying for grants but can do much better if we have matching funds. Replacement cost falls in the area of $50,000 - $70,000. We are a non-profit 501c3 organization. Please consider a tax-free donation. Every contribution will protect the building and Carlton County's priceless collection.

Thank You!
