My first memory is of my mother’s forefinger skimming beneath the words, “Once upon a time, in a faraway land, lived a beautiful princess named Snow White. She had skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood, and hair as black as ebony.” In that moment, I fell in love with words, and I have never fallen out of it.
I just got back from Australia. Okay, not really. Actually, I was in the UAA / APU Consortium Library, the building that looks like a gigantic bakery muffin, particularly when there’s snow on the ground. Warm, earthy oranges and reds draw the visitor in; the walls curve, ending at a spectacular wall of glass rising three stories.
Last week, Rasmuson Foundation staff members and Board member Morgan Christen joined with an excited group of funders, librarians and community partners to celebrate the launch of the Alaska OWL: Online With Libraries project. The project will provide broadband Internet service to Alaska’s 105 public libraries, as well as public videoconferencing network.
