Summer Discovery @ the Library

Did you know that school-age kids who continue reading during summer break lose less academic achievement when they return to school in the fall than kids who do not? The Anchorage Public Library can help with that. In addition, APL offers fun reading and learning opportunities for the entire family, or cradle-to-grave, as it were.

Hidden Treasures @ the Library, Part One

You probably doze off when you hear the word databases mentioned, yes? It’s okay, I get it.They sound boring, utilitarian, and maybe a bit confusing. But really, they’re amazing unicorns of usefulness and fun once you uncover them. And the library has so many to explore! This month, you’ll get a taste of what Anchorage Public Library offers; I’ll cover more at another time. Just know that you can access any of these—for free--when you visit an APL branch, and most can be accessed from home with your APL library card.

Writers @ the Library

Libraries are synonymous with reading, but the flip-side of that is writing. Without writers, we wouldn’t have all of those books on the shelves, on audiobooks, and in eBook form. There are a wide variety of authors, both local and not, coming to the Anchorage Public Library before summer arrives.
