We are committed to providing professional expertise, space, information, education and access to our collections, technology and programs to everyone, regardless of income or background, in a safe and secure environment..

Comments Off.. Contributors thanked for new library museum building.. January 14, 2013.. Posted with permission from Heidi Zemach, reporter for Seward City News (SCN).. Seward’s grand new library museum building on Sixth Avenue will open its doors to the public Saturday, Jan 12, at 1:30 p.. m.. for a dedication ceremony.. The beautiful new building has been accomplished, and has an inviting finished look to it.. It is surprisingly spacious inside, and stands up to its fundraising, public relations campaign name, “Something for Us.. ” It’s many rooms and spaces, comfortable new furniture, and window coverings featuring old photographs from Seward’s past will be a treat for locals and visitors alike.. Contributors gather in the entry hall of the Library Museum, photo by Heidi Zemach.. This Friday night it filled with its major financial backers and supporters from across the state, for an invitation-only sneak preview prior to Saturday’s opening, and for the building committee to thank them for bringing the building to completion.. Building committee board members, Seward museum and library backers, politicians including former city mayors, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, and head contractors who worked on the building, were amazed and some were moved to tears by its beauty, and the realization that what had begun as a dream for the community more than nine years ago was a reality and would become “the heart of Seward” for decades to come.. Photo by Heidi Zemach.. Forensics and Debate Club cheer for each contributor.. The Seward High School Forensics and Debate Club, dressed to the nines in smart black suits, skirts and ties, welcomed the senator and visitors, and gave an enthusiastic “hip hip horray” for each contributor named and thanked in a ceremony in the spacious first floor meeting room.. Meanwhile AVTEC culinary arts students, just returned from winter vacation, and dressed in pressed whites, graciously offered up the amazing finger foods they had prepared including filet mignon sliders, au jus, duck and mushroom pates, quinoa salad.. Even they couldn’t contain their enthusiasm for the new Seward building: It just makes you want to read in my opinion,” said AVTEC student Alexandra Prabuki.. Keith Campbell shows Senator Lisa Murkowski vintage hair curling maching (Heidi Zemach photo).. Keith Campbell gave Senator Murkowski and other public dignitaries a tour of some of the museum exhibits, such as the permanent wave hair curling machine, used in the 1920s.. “It smelled of burnt hair,” said Beverly Dunham.. Head Librarian Patty Linville illustrated the work put into planning the project by telling the audience of backers how the library has some 1,900 files contained in 308 folders dating back to 2004.. That’s about the time when the idea was first conceived as a Seward Centennial project that could be enjoyed by all Seward residents.. She also has three fat subfolders titled “Mary’s Stuff”, “Keith’s Stuff” and “Kerry’s Stuff.. ” Mary Tougas, Keith Campbell and Kerry Martin were some of the most instrumental volunteers in seeing the project through, Linville said, fighting back tears of gratitude and perhaps relief.. “I’m continually humbled by their dedication.. It’s been a pleasure working with you,” she said.. Kent Crandall, the project manager, from RISE Alaska, stood in the crowd, watching the speakers, with a broad grin filling his face.. “I am delighted to be with you this evening,” said Murkowski.. “To be here with this community, to celebrate a community event is really quite special.. I don’t know if you feel what is present in this room but this is the heart of a community, it’s your history in a beautiful little museum, the opportunity to share discussion and thought.. ” In many Alaska communities that she visits, the library is the focus and pride of that community and it defines them, she said.. The state helped fund the Seward Library Museum along with six other community library projects, some yet to be built.. Their support for a library demonstrates the love they have for their town, she said.. A representative for State Senator Gary Stevens, who now represents a new district, echoed her sentiments.. Stevens was a strong supporter of the library museum building effort.. Stevens was very sorry not to be able to make it to the opening ceremony, and gave his loving regards to a town he has come to know and love, he said.. “We will never forget all the help he gave to us, and to this project,” said Assistant City Manager Ron Long.. Major contributors toast new building.. Heidi Zemach photo.. Building Committee member Vanta Shafer thanked Former Mayor Edgar Blatchford who created the “Something for Us” committee, and promoted the idea of the new building project early on.. “When I drive by I’m proud of it, I love it, and can’t wait to seeing it here for years to come,” Shafer said.. “I’m so proud of this I can hardly stand it, and it’s all here because of you,” gushed former Seward Mayor Willard Dunham, another longtime project supporter.. Drop by and visit the new building and see for yourself Saturday for the opening ceremony, or come see it Monday, when it officially opens to the public for business.. The ceremony begins at 1:30 p.. with the Seward Singers and Seward Seahawks choir performing the Alaska Flag Song, and a ribbon cutting.. Nancy White Carlstrom the noted author of the popular “Jesse Bear” children’s book series will be there and give presentations on her books to the young children..

JUNEAU – On Oct.. 10, the Alaska State Historical Records Advisory Board (ASHRAB) awarded Amy Carney and Lee Poleske archival Certificates of Excellence for their innovative.. series of 5- to 7-minute historical videos covering all aspects of Seward, Alaska’s past.. Carney is the Seward Community Library Museum Collections Coordinator, and Poleske is a local historian who has tirelessly volunteered to gather and share Seward’s history for all who care to listen.. Carney and Poleske used archival records including photographs, maps, newspapers, and 16mm archival video footage to produce 40 videos that are accessible on the Seward Library website and YouTube.. Topics covered include the first Moscow to New York flight in 1929 with a stopover in Seward, the story of the Alaska state flag created by 13-year old Benny Benson of the Jesse Lee Mission School in 1927, and the 1928 Mt.. Marathon race.. The ASHRAB members noted that this collection of historical vignettes is local history at its best and that the medium chosen enables the older generation to communicate with and pass on the torch of history to its successors.. The ASHRAB, coordinated by the State Archivist, is a 9-member Governor-appointed state board.. The ASHRAB believes that the collection and preservation of historical records, Alaska’s priceless legacy, are fundamental to understanding our past and guiding our future..

Seward $500,000 capital campaign reaches library museum goal.. June 2, 2012.. Photo by: Heidi Zemach.. The Seward Community Library Museum Building Committee fulfilled its pledge to raise a half-million dollars in their community when they delivered a check for $500,000 this week to Seward City Council members.. Capping the successful two-year fund raising campaign named “Be Part of the Heart,” the check presentation put the final financial piece in place for the funding needed to complete the $10.. 4 million facility currently under construction.. Building Committee members made the check presentation as part of the centennial celebration of Seward’s founding.. A Seward centennial committee identified a new library seven years ago as a fitting, 100-year tribute.. Since that time, community volunteers worked hard to make the new library museum become a sparkling reality.. The new facility will open this December.. Keith Campbell, chairman of the Building Committee, acknowledged the generosity of the Seward community as proof of the library’s popularity with the businesses and people in Seward.. State funding and private endowments account for about 70 percent of the funding package needed for the project, while a city-wide general obligation bond and capital campaign provided the remaining 30 percent.. “In terms of what the community will gain in services and civic pride, I think this new library is a deal.. I expect our entire downtown area to experience a new flourish when it opens in December,” said Campbell.. “That opening day is going to be a proud one for all of us.. ”.. Reaching the promised fund-raising goal is just part of the picture, said Building Committee Co-Chair Mary Tougas.. Their work is not complete.. A gala fund-raising dinner cruise is scheduled for June 15, and proceeds from the cruise will fund some things that were originally cut from the original building budget, like a flagpole, landscaping and more.. “Plus, we have some additional unfunded display needs in the Museum that would really enhance showing Seward’s history.. “Our next focus is getting our entire community involved with the dedication ceremony inDecember,” said Tougas..

    Descriptive info: Public attending an update and the 80th Birthday Party of our library!.. Facts handout sheet in pdf.. Timeline Document in pdf.. Seward, Alaska has a long history of caring for and using their community library.. They also have a colorful history that is preserved at the Seward Museum.. Plans are underway to combine both of these community services to better serve the people of Seward.. The Library/Museum project evolved as a major Seward effort following several public meetings in 2002 called by the Seward City Mayor Edgar Blatchford.. He felt Seward needed a spirit of revival and hoped to get townspeople working together for the betterment of the community.. These scoping meetings drew a wide spectrum of citizens and a lot of enthusiasm.. The Mayor dubbed the effort “SOS,” for Spirit of Seward.. Fortunately the time period coincided with another project – that of planning for the celebration of Seward’s 100th anniversary in 2003.. Scores of townspeople attending the scoping meetings broke into groups and were directed to develop a list of projects that could be carried into Seward’s second century.. It was envisioned such a project could be at least started and possibly completed by 2012, the anniversary of Seward’s city charter.. These meetings resulted in hundreds of ideas.. Some were impractical for one reason or another: too grandiose, too costly, not inclusive, narrow scope of interest, too complicated, or did not  ...   architect went to work.. In December of that year the design concept was unveiled.. December 2006, the City of Seward purchased the six lots west of the current library location.. The wish to keep the library museum in the downtown area of Seward was the basis for selecting the site as the future home of the proposed library museum.. In 2007, the Seward Community Library Museum Building Committee worked with the Foraker Predevelopment Fund to create a facility that is not only beautiful, but functional and most importantly sustainable.. The McDowell Group was commissioned to do a feasibility study on the design concept and also produced a comparison of similar projects for future planners.. After reviewing the feasibility findings, the Building Committee went back to the drawing board to pare down the project to reflect the ability of the community to support and sustain the library museum.. The Seward Community Library Museum Building Committee meets every second Thursday of the month in the basement of the current Library (unless otherwise advertised) at noon.. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.. Please call 224-4008 or email plinville@cityofseward.. net.. Library website.. Leave a Reply.. Cancel reply..

The new design concept is 16,300 square feet, roughly half of the original concept.. Since October, 2008, the Steering Committee has been working with Foraker Predevelopment Fund to resize and create a library museum better suited to our community.. (This pre-development work is complete, we are now at 65% design with the current design views posted on this site.. Thank you Foraker Group and their funders for this opportunity!) (May 2011, we are now at 95% design!).. *Design complete, we are under construction! See pictures at our About Construction page.. What grant funding has been awarded to the project?.. The State of Alaska has awarded the project 4.. 7Million towards our project, asking that the City of Seward join in funding the project, along with community leadership giving.. To date, the leadership giving is at $300,000+.. (State of Alaska grant has been recieved by the City of Seward, July 2010.. ).. *note: These funds are dedicated to this new building project and can not be used for any other use.. Rasmuson Foundation has awarded a matching grant of $500,000.. These funds can be matched by another grant award or by project fund raising.. (Award notification November, 2010.. *note: This grant has been accepted by the City of Seward, as stated in the grant application, the funds are for this new building project only and can not be used for any other use.. National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has awarded the project a challenge grant in the amount of $500,000.. These funds are to be matched 3:1.. (Award notification December, 2010)(accepted by the City of Seward through consent agenda April, 25, 2011)..  ...   Seward purchased 6 lots across the alley from the current library as the selected site for the building.. (The old Salvation Army or Lechner property.. ).. The Lechner house has been removed as of mid January 2011 to start preparing the lot for construction!.. What will happen to the current library and museum spaces?.. The current library will be used by the City of Seward for office space.. They currently rent office space downtown.. The museum space is being considered for use by either the TYC or the Senior Center.. Will the windows create energy loss?.. Building materials will be good quality and low maintenance.. Windows will be double glazed with very good energy performance.. In general the building will be seeking a high standard of overall energy efficiency.. *NOTE, Triple pane windows are being explored, which will give maximum energy efficiency to the windows.. Will the roof hold the snow load?.. The roof will be designed to hold a heavy snow load by new codes whether it sheds or not.. Retaining the snow saves energy, requires less snow removal expense, and is safer.. Won’t this facility compete with the Mary Lowell Center?.. The community space in the library museum will be offered free for public use, private uses will be charged.. The meeting spaces can be utilized as breakout or overflow space for conferences hosted at the MLC.. We feel this building will compliment the mission of the MLC.. (Unfortunately the MLC has not been able to happen, we will work with the MLC project as they explore what will be able to be brought to the community.. *MLC project is no longer active, it is not known what will happen with all the land lots that were purchased downtown Seward for this project to happen..
