Unalaska Public Library expands online services


Unalaskans can stay up to date with the latest books, magazines — and now, movies and TV shows — all for free with a library card. The Unalaska Public Library recently added a new online streaming platform to its services, giving cardholders access to all kinds of new media.

On this episode of "Island Interviews," Librarian Karen Kresh discusses online services like Kanopy and Libby provided by the Unalaska Public Library.

This interview originally aired on KUCB on Jan. 09, 2024.

  • Crowds of Unalaskans gathered Sunday to celebrate the grand opening of the newly expanded Unalaska Public Library. “It’s an investment by the community in itself, really,” said City Librarian Karen Kresh. “And a statement of confidence in the future of this community — that we’re still going to be here for the next 25 years."
  • Three-year-old Remy walked into the newly-renovated Unalaska Public Library earlier this month, hand-in-hand with his dad Carlos Tayag, his library card hanging from a carabiner across his chest. He approached the desk — his eyes just above the countertop — and handed a form to the librarian, titles of different children’s books scribbled on the gridded white sheet. Library staff greeted him with a paper certificate and a medal on a sparkling gold ribbon that read “1,000 books before kindergarten.”
