Seldovia Public Library receives Rasmuson Foundation Tier 1 Grant
Posted by Tracie Merrill, Library Board member on May 2, 2015
The Seldovia Public Library Board is very happy and excited to announce that our little library has received an $8,000 dollar Rasmuson Foundation Tier 1 Grant to help renovate the downstairs room in the Multi-purpose building where currently we house our Alaskana collection as well as audiobooks and a computer station.
Things will be happening very quickly with that room this summer, starting immediately. Improvements that will be done to the room under this grant:
2) new furnishings will be purchased (chairs, table, curtains or blinds, a rug)
3) walls and bookshelves will be painted
4) bookshelves will be made more “mobile” but also secured in the event of an earthquake
5) a 2nd publically accessible computer station will be set up dedicated to a digital collection of local archive/historical materials
6) a display/exhibit celebrating the history of the library and Seldovia Women’s Club will be created using the antique safe already in that room
7) paintings will be hung up on the walls
8) the door will be fixed
9) a video teleconferencing unit (including monitor) will be installed allowing programs and meetings to take place in the room utilizing video teleconferencing
Kathleen Gruber has volunteered to oversee this project. Realizing this vision has been a long time in the making and a big Thank You goes out to the Rasmuson Foundation, Kathleen Gruber, the committee members and board members who provided (and will continue to provide) input and guidance into the renovations, and the City.
As these renovations happen over the next couple of months, please bare with us as access to the room and the collections housed in that room may temporarily become more restrictive and a little chaotic.
