The youth activity program at the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum provides young people with opportunities to work with professional artists to learn artistic techniques and engage with art, history, and the collections of the Library, Archives, and Museum. These activities are sponsored by the Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum and are partially funded by the citizens of the City and Borough of Juneau through sales tax revenues.
Celebrate the opening of The Spirit Wraps Around You at the Alaska State Museum by creating a woven basket with a yogurt cup base with weaver Kay Parker. Kay has taught weaving classes throughout southeast and her sleeved tunic is featured in the exhibit.
Participation in this workshop is limited to Juneau students. Registration is required and will open in mid-April.
The Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum support youth in need by providing bus tokens for children and their parents who require transportation assistance. If your family would benefit from this, please contact the program coordinator.
A person experiencing a disability who needs accommodation for events hosted by the Alaska State Library, Archives, and Museum can contact the Division’s ADA coordinator at (907) 465-2912 a week in advance to make any necessary arrangements.
