Seward Community Library closes its doors after 50 years

Saturday, December 8th was almost just another ordinary day at the Seward Community Library. The friendly and helpful staff smiled as usual and answered questions. Patrons exchanged  books, DVDs, audio books, and other library items. But this time, their selections had to last until January 14th.

After 50 years, the former Kenai Co-Op Groceries and Meat store would no longer serve as a library. To celebrate the event, patrons enjoyed Amy Mow’s delicious cupcakes topped with tiny books, and cake decorated with an edible photo of the library. The sparkling, shimmering new Seward Community Library Museum beckoned next door.

Please join the same friendly and helpful staff for the Grand Opening Celebration at the new building on January 12, 2013. And don’t forget to bring your stash of library treasures on January 14th when the new facility opens for service.

  2. City offices, such as the electrical department, which have been located at the old train depot.

  3. Did I miss something? Isn’t this just a bit off topic?
