Family Night

First Tuesdays  @ 5:30pm

October-April (Downtown Library)

May-September (Valley Library)

Family Night is a great chance for pre-schoolers and their families to enjoy the library in a whole new way.  Each month the library and AEYC-SEA (the Association for the Education of Young Children- Southeast Alaska) pair up with a community organization like the Gastineau Humane Society, the Raptor Center and others to provide a great experience for young and old. 

A light supper is provided as are themed crafts, stories and a presentation from the partner organzation.  Each child to attend receives a free book to take home. 

Checkout the JPL Youtube Channel to see some videos from Family Night featuring the White Pass and Yukon Railroad Conducters reading "The Little Engine That Could"!
