Library Policies

Home/Library Policies

The purpose of the Ketchikan Public Library is to provide informational, educational, and recreational materials and services for the people of the City of Ketchikan and the Ketchikan Gateway Borough. This is accomplished through development, maintenance, and promotion of materials, physical spaces, and programs responsive to the diverse interest and needs of our community.

Our policies regarding this facility can be found by clicking the links found on the right side of this page.


The Ketchikan Public Library 2018-2022 Strategic Plan has been developed to focus our efforts to serve the Ketchikan community. Click here for detailed information about the Library’s 2017 Community Survey and the development of the Strategic Plan.
