The Ketchikan Public Library will host a public flag-raising ceremony at 8:15 a.m. Monday, at the new library building on Copper Ridge Lane.
A flag pole was installed recently, and the library is scheduled to open for business at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 2nd. That’s about a month after the old library downtown closed. Library employees have spent that time moving all the books and materials into the new space.
A grand opening ceremony for the new $12-million library is Jan. 19th.
The Ketchikan City Council moved quickly through the short list of action items on Thursday’s agenda, and likely would have been done with the meeting in less than 30 minutes, except a new issue was brought to the Council’s attention by several citizens. more
