JUNEAU – Alaskans of all ages and abilities can now access free books at books.alaska.gov. Books are available for babies, toddlers, parents, students, and adults on a single website through these collections:
The idea for the website was inspired by Senator Lisa Murkowski, who commented during a recent meeting with Alaska librarians that: “Alaskans need books. There has to be a way to get books out to every Alaskan!”
These collections are funded by the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Alaska Library Network. The Alaska State Library developed the website to make Senator Murkowski’s idea a reality and to provide Alaskans easy access to books to encourage a love of reading.
