The Friends of the Juneau Public Libraries is a non-profit organization that assists the library with special projects. Funds raised by the Friends go toward special gifts and grants to Juneau’s three municipal library branches.
Put Yourself in Good Company:
Purchase an Engraved Brick for the New Valley Library!
Construction of the new Mendenhall valley Public Library is underway and we need your help to finish the job! Buy a brick and we’ll engrave it and place it on the exterior front wall of the library. The cost is $100 for one line of text and $150 for two. Thank you for your support.
Funds raised by the Friends go toward special gifts and grants to Juneau’s three municipal library branches. The group raised over $1 million to help pay for the planned new Mendenhall Valley Public Library in Dimond Park. Previous donations include $35,000 for furnishing the downtown library, raised through the sale of the name tiles gracing the upstairs entry way.
The Friends operate “The Amazing Bookstore” in the Airport Shopping Center. The bookstore offers secondhand books at bargain prices. All profits go to support the Juneau Public Libraries. Friends also sponsor the annual summer reading program, the annual bookmark contest, and the Authors-to-Juneau series.
You can join the group as a supporting member or an active member. Supporting members (unless they request otherwise) will be listed among those who financially support our public libraries. Active members volunteer to participate in various Friends activities.
