Childrens reading area




The Friends of the Library continue their commitment to the library by raising funds and supporting programs that enhance learning, reading and a love of the library.


The Friends of the Library sponsor several children and young adult programs including, the Summer Reading program, the monthly Family Story Time and Dr. Seuss's Birthday. The Friends help purchase children's reading material, adult education videos, CD-ROM materials and CD music collection. Through grant funding, The Friends have created a core collection of Mental Health materials, worked with the Kenai Senior Center to create a lending library of Dementia and Alzhiemer's materials and installed in the Library a museum quality display case for a collection of Native Alaskan dolls and beadwork.
