Friends of the Ketchikan Public Library

  • Facebook

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

  • Book sales

  • 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


The Friends hold periodic sales in the Library's lobby.  Donations are not being accepted at this time. 

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.
