In September the Soldotna City Council unanimously approved an ordinance to increase estimated revenues and appropriations for the Soldotna City Library by $45,000 for the purchase of all new library books.
That process is in the works, we spoke with Soldotna Librarian Rachel Nash.
Nash: “Most recently we’ve ordered a bunch of new children’s non-fiction, we’ve ordered some new books for the teens and some new books for adults in the fiction categories, particularly in the westerns and also in science fiction and we’re currently working on ordering some non-fiction for the adult section.”
Nash also gave us an update on the library and where they are with moving to the new facility.
Nash: “Well at the moment the new library has shelves in and some of the furniture, we are still waiting on what’s called the casework which are the end caps and the tops of the shelves and we can’t actually move the collection up from the basement until those arrive, there have been a few shipment delays, living in Alaska I’m sure everyone is used to that so that’s what we’re waiting on right now but we are still hoping to open before winter break.”
