Weird Book of the Week

It’s time once again for another unusual book from the Library. This week we’re presenting The Toothpick: Technology and Culture.

The first few seasons they were hated by parents everywhere, banning t-shirts in schools and punishing those who use the phrase “eat my shorts!”. Soon after the ban was lifted […]

Democracy in Alaska

Democracy in Alaska

For Seward City News by Russ Maddox The spate of indictments against current and former lawmakers is no doubt saddening to most Alaskans.
