The renovation of the Kalama Library is nearing completion. Be prepared for a new, open, modern and very useable facility in your new Library. There will be a Grand Opening Celebration on July 29th in conjunction with the 100th Anniversary of the Library's formation. The new space includes an expanded Children's area and reading areas, as well as computers to be used or a nice relaxing area for those using their labtops. There will be a public meeting room for Kalama groups to use. The Council and Planning Commission meetings will be able to move back to the Council Chambers instead of the Community Building.
The Kalama Library was formed by AMALAK back in 1917 and has enjoyed several locations over the years, such as the Community Building and its current location in the Bookmobile. The Kalama Library is no longer a place for checking out books or using reference materials alone, but a multi-media community center serving all the citizens of Kalama. A full day of events is planned for the Grand Opening which will include tours of the new facility, a downtown street fair, food, a beer garden and street dance. We hope everyone will come out to help us celebrate.
