Developing strong vibrant libraries in Alaska!
Library Development provides leadership, assistance and expertise to Alaska’s libraries, in support of a cooperative network of strong and vibrant libraries that serve Alaskans’ educational and cultural needs. (Revised November 2013)
If you are in a community in the joint-library catalog, place a hold on an item and pick it up at the most convenient public or university library location. If you are in a community that is not part of the joint-library catalog and want an item (that is not in ListenAlaska), you can submit an interlibrary loan request. If you are living in a remote rural location without a public library, you may request materials from Alaska Mail Services.
A statewide membership organization that offers a conference, a listserve, a newsletter, a library directory and opportunities to network with your Alaskan peers.
