The Seldovia Public Library has received a Rasmuson Foundation Tier 1 Grant to renovate the downstairs room of our library this summer. This is an approximately 20 ft by 20 ft room. The Library Board is currently soliciting local bids for some minor general labor/repair work. Work to be completed would include: floor tiling put in (TM Allure Oak Resilient Plank – 24SF; 20 cases), an antique safe moved, the door to the room fixed (it is not properly egressed so needs to be “turned around”), and a window’s opening mechanisms repaired. Floor tiling has already been ordered and purchased so cost of purchasing tiling should not be included in bids. It is our understanding the existing floor would not need to be removed but rather the new tiling can be laid on top of it. We expect work to be completed over a few days and by the end of July/early August. We are accepting local bids from all qualified companies and persons up to July 18th, 2015. Please include work experience/professional qualifications as well. Please submit bids, questions, or requests to view the room to the Library Board at firstname.lastname@example.org. The room may also be viewed during any regular open library hours without special request. The successful contractor will be notified within a week of July 18th. Thank you.

The Seldovia Public Library Board has some exciting news to share with the community. As of July 1st, Laura Haskins will be the new director of the library. Laura has a great library background from Unalaska and is currently going for a Master’s degree in Library Science, so the Board is absolutely confident Laura will do a wonderful job and are so excited and lucky to have her in this position. For those of you wondering if I, Tracie, will continue to be involved with the library – the answer is absolutely! I’m still going to be involved with the library and on the Library Board. The Board has waited a long time to have this position filled “officially” and are so pleased to have such the right fit. Heart felt congratulations and best wishes goes out to Laura as she takes the reigns!
