Heart-felt Congratulations and Welcome go out to Laura Haskins who is now our newest library Board Member. We are so excited to have her on the Board and really look forward to working with her. Laura has background as a librarian at Unalaska City Schools, where she oversaw library operations from collection development and weeding, to daily checkouts, story time, and special programs. We are sure she will have valuable insight and perspective to give to the Board with all her great experience. Also, thanks to everyone who applied for the open Board seat and to all the volunteers at our little library- your interest and willingness to give of your time to the library is greatly appreciated and benefits our community immensely.
