Slogan Contest

As you probably know, we are trying to build Ketchikan a library - for the first time in 100 years - and this campaign needs a slogan. We are looking for something catchy, something positive, something that will fit on a coffee cup or bumper sticker. It should reflect the fact that a library is about more than books - it's about information, communication, and a civic identity. The new library building will be the community's 'living room', where residents will feel comfortable and welcome, a place to connect up with neighbors, a safe haven for children and teens, and a shared space for community groups and organizations. Obviously, that's a lot of meaning to pack into a 4-5 word phrase, but we have a lot of faith in the creativity of our town. So, if you would like to help us out, you can download an entry form or come to the library to pick one up. All entries will be placed in a drawing for a $50 gift certificate from A&P Grocery, and the winning slogan will receive a basket of prizes. The contest ends on August 15th, and winners will be announced on August 20th. If you have any other questions, or would like to submit your entry remotely, please call us at 907-225-3331 or email us at: Don't forget to include your name and phone #, so that we can contact you if you're a winner!
