The city is moving forward on plans to expand Unalaska's public library.

Six companies have bid on the chance to design the renovation, according to City Manager Thomas E. Thomas.

On Tuesday, Thomas said city officials are reviewing those proposals and planning to make a recommendation to the City Council by the end of the month.

Unalaska's capital plan has construction slated for fiscal years 2020 and 2021, with a budget of $4.6 million.

Last year, preliminary designs proposed expanding the library by 35 percent to make way for a larger children’s section, teen area, and Alaskana meeting room.

Laura Kraegel reported for KUCB from 2016 until 2020. She was KUCB's news director starting in 2019.
