Connecting people to Alaska’s diverse history, art and cultures by supporting the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum
WHO are the Friends?
The Friends of the Alaska State Library, Archives and Museum (FoSLAM) works hard to support and promote the myriad of amazing activities that take place in the library, archives and museum located in Juneau’s Andrew P. Kashevaroff (APK) building. Our goal is to provide a long-term funding source for special events, guest speakers and artists, and to purchase of statewide historical objects and fine artwork that are beyond what the annual State of Alaska budget can provide.
EXHIBITS + EVENTS
Fun Activities for EVERYONE
In the last few years the Friends supported a wide range of activities that were fun and informative. Art and photography popped with Solo Artists, Alaska Positive, and All-Alaska Biennial exhibits. Lectures taught about Alaska’s fossil coastline, salmon canneries, carving for teens, weaving, and whaling. FoSLAM hosted a literary festival, organ concert, Con Brio, Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Juneau’s Big Read, volunteer projects, and hired a summer intern, to name just a few of the events we supported.
