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.
