Art Education Endowment funds Curiosity Creates in 2018!

We're excited to announce that the Petersburg Library Art Education Endowment will fund our weekly afterschool STEAM program in 2018! The Endowment, along with a generous donation from the Friends of Petersburg's Libraries, will keep this popular program running weekly until April. 

The Arts Education Endowment was established in 2012 by Petersburg resident John McCabe. The fund provides financial assistance to the library that will be spent exclusively on art and cultural programs.  The annual interest earnings provides a stable, ongoing funding source to enhance arts programming at the Library. The fund is held and managed by the Alaska Community Foundation

Donations can be made online below,  at the library front desk or by mailing your contribution to the Petersburg Public Library, PO Box 549 Petersburg Alaska 99833.
