Seldovia Public Library Board Welcomes New Director!

Posted by Tracie Merrill, Library Board member on June 28, 2015

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!

Summer Reading Program is starting at the library this summer

Posted by Tracie Merrill, Library Board member on May 16, 2015

This should be fun! A summer reading program is starting at the library on June 1st for children up to 14 years of age. Details below in the flyer. This is a great way for children to stay engaged with reading this summer and they will get to participate in a party at the end (perhaps even in what will be the newly renovated downstairs room!).

Library help needed!

Posted by Tracie Merrill, Library Board member on May 10, 2015

Don’t know what to do this summer? The library has shifts in need of filling! Are you free on Saturday afternoons or Tuesday evenings? The library is in immediate need of a volunteer who can work the 3-5 pm shift on Saturdays or the 7-9 pm shift on Tuesdays. There may be other opportunities, as well, for volunteering at the library so please check with us. We can also always use folks who are willing to “fill in” as needed when volunteers who work regular shifts can’t make their shifts. Volunteering at the library is a great way to meet community members (you see everyone), work with friendly people, and do community service (especially if you are in high school). It is really important we have enough volunteers to cover all the shifts and hours the library is open. Not only is that because we want to keep the library open during times the community wants us to be open, but under our grant terms, we are required to remain open a certain amount of hours each week. All the training you need will be provided to you. Please contact Tracie Merrill at 907-750-2918 or traciemerrill@hotmail.com if you are interested in volunteering. Thank you!
