A library is so much more than books

Want to download music? Maybe take a book or movie home for a few days? Need some extra math tutoring? How about a few minutes with a staffer who can help you set up an e-mail account, program your Kindle and iPad, or find a kernel of information in the vast sea of the internet? Need to brush up on your German but don't want to shell out several hundred dollars for that Rosetta Stone program? Or, maybe you just want a quiet place to curl up and read the latest issue of Alaska Magazine or Time.

Unsung Heroes honored at Kenai Community Awards Ceremony

The custom of honoring the un-sung heroes in our community who consistently contribute to the well being of Kenai and make this a great place to live, work and play is a valuable tradition carried out annually by the Kenai Chamber of Commerce. "These are humble folks, so we have to be very secretive until the Awards Ceremony or most of them would chose not to be present, and intrigue makes it fun," said Carol Bannock, executive director for the Kenai Chamber. The keynote speaker at this year's presentations was Kip Knudson, external affairs manager for Tesoro and chair for the Alaska State Chamber of Commerce. He addressed the reasons why Alaska was ranked the least favorable state to do business in the U.S. and presented tangible ways for the Kenai Chamber to partner with the State Chamber in communicating that Alaska is not only open for business, but a great place to do business.
