In 2010 Carol Stedman interviewed her husband Bill about his childhood in Petersburg. He tells a charming story about how he and his dog Skippy rode around town on his bike, and about flying kites in a blizzard. His kite building ventures gave way to a life in aviation and Bill became a well-respected and busy pilot.
Bill speaks about the famous bush pilots he flew with as a young man and later about flying interesting people all around Southeast, including the movie stars in Petersburg for the filming of “Ice Palace”.

Plastic bags present a host of environmental problems - many of them have an impact on our oceans. Today the library is taking the first steps toward ditching plastic bags! We're rolling out reusable blue bags at the front desk when you check out material. When items are returned, the blue bag is returned with them so we can use it again. We hope you like this change! Let us know what you think.
