Annual Meeting 11/14/15

The Friends of the Juneau Public Libraries are holding our Annual Meeting on November 11/14/15 at 3 pm at the Valley Library Large Meeting Room. All members and the public are welcome.  The meeting agenda as well as related documents (slate of board candidates for consideration, suggested edits to the bylaws for review are posted) here.

It’s not just a library, it’s a chance at a better education.  We are pleased to announce that the long awaited new home for the Mendenhall Valley Library opened its doors to the community on October 5th, 2015!  What an amazing facility, we hope you’ll visit soon.

Mall Library Closed: 8/31, 8 PM
New Library Opened: October 5th
New Library Grand opening celebration: November 7th

Come on out and find your brick on the wall (among so many!) and know that it’s so much more than a brick, it’s your piece of a community owned organization you believe in. Libraries create community and provide essential foundations for early literacy.

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, you’re supporting an organization that provides a chance at a better education for all Juneau residents, young and old.

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.
