A Library built by a Community!

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 will open its doors to the community on October 5th, 2015!

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

Come on out and find your brick on the wall 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.
