Seward's Folly Celebrates an Anniversary

Last month, a group of school children entered the library and returned many books about each of the 50 states.  They were excited to share their new-found knowledge. 

Since in January, Alaska celebrates its hard won 60th anniversary to become our 49th state, I wanted to point out resources our libraries have about the state once known as “Seward’s Folly”. 

For instance, did you know Alaska was purchased from Russia for just $7.2 million in 1867?  At 2 cents an acre that seems a pretty good bargain.

So if you’re traveling there or are an armchair traveler, check out these library nonfiction books and DVDs or choose a book of fiction that will give you a sense of life in Alaska.
