Friends of the Ketchikan Public Library

Who we are:

  • Friends who know that our community needs and benefits from a first-rate library. 

  • Friends who are interested in promoting the library by improving its services, resources, and community role.

  • Friends who care about libraries.


We are a volunteer group and an organized 501(c)(3) non-profit. Officers are elected at our annual meeting in April. We maintain email and mailing lists.


What we do:

  • Summer Reading Club support

  • Annual Book Sale (fundraiser)

  • Blueberry Arts Festival booth

  • National Library Week activities

  • Library Special Requests (purchases, subscriptions, activities)

  • Alaska Digital Library audio- and e-books

  • Teen Advisory Group support

  • Visiting Authors support


 Where does the money come from, and where does it go?

  • Funds come from membership dues, gifts, endowments, memorials, the annual book sale, and the library book sale cart.

  • Money is used for Friends’ projects and for library needs outside the regular budget allowance.
