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.
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.
The Chugiak-Eagle River Public Library is a peaceful place to be. Many people enjoy the library because it is quiet and a good place for studying or reading. The Chugiak- Eagle River Library hosts many cool events. They have storytime three times every week also a family movie night every Friday, with popcorn and candy! During the summer they have a summer reading program with prizes, as well as other family events. Four librarians work at the Chugiak-Eagle River Public Library, and many volunteers. You have to be 13 years or older to volunteer. If you do volunteer, you work about 2 hours a day on whatever days of the week you can make it to the library. Tuesday is the best time to volunteer because the library has been closed for two days, so there are a lot of books that need to be reshelved.
