Soldotna library staff appreciates help with move

I wish to thank all the wonderful people who helped us move into the Peninsula Center Mall, as we begin construction and renovation of our expanded library on Binkley Street. The library will be located in the Peninsula Center Mall throughout the renovation and expansion, expected to be completed in early summer 2013. Connie Goltz, Sharon Sleater, Sherril Miller, Marge Hays, Robin Veluce, Jeri Best, Dan Pascucci, Kari Mohn, Mikaela and Olnick Hultstrand, Donna Miller, Cynthia Laramee, Patsy Ulen, Karen Ferguson, Sabrina, Megan, and Zachary Hardin, and the Billie Loehr family, Josh Overturf, and Maria Dixson donated a total of 126 hours to move a large portion of our collection to shelving in the library's basement, and then boxed up approximately 7,500 books, DVDs, and audio books that were moved to the temporary location at the Mall. Thank you also to the Friends of the Library for clearing out the basement, the great folks at the Packaging Store who moved shelves, furnishings, and boxes, Arneson Construction for sprucing up our temporary site, the City of Soldotna's Maintenance crew for helping with the hundred and one "odds-n-ends" things that came up, and Judy Swarner for the delicious, homemade cookies!  

Finally, we thank our patrons for their patience and support, and apologize for any inconvenience this transition has caused.
