Thanks to the 760+ individuals, families, union chapters and businesses who purchased a brick for the new Valley Library!  You didn’t just  buy a brick, your support of the Juneau Public LIbraries provides a chance at a better education for all Juneau residents, young and old.

Head over to Dimond Park, see what’s happening in the vibrant library spaces and find your donor brick on the wall.

If you missed the opportunity to purchase a brick, we hope you’ll consider becoming a member or making a general donation via our secure online membership site.   There are also ongoing opportunities for planned giving to the Juneau Public Libraries via the Friends so please contact us using the email address at the bottom of the page for more information.

 

“When you are growing up there are two institutional places that affect you most powerfully: the church, which belongs to God, and the public library, which belongs to you. The public library is a great equalizer.” —Keith Richards
