    Mug Up: The Language of Work

    April 1 - October 8, 2022


    The Mug Up: The Language of Work exhibition shares the oft-forgotten stories of the multitudes who canned salmon and created ethnically diverse, economically vital, canning culture in Alaska. The exhibition is curated by Katie Ringsmuth and organized by the Alaska State Museum in partnership with NN Cannery History Project.

    Now reading The Serpents Trail by Sue Henry.

    Story hours for kids are great, but why should they get all the fun?

    We’re jumping into a mystery this time, and we’re pushing our standard a bit: it’s by an Alaskan author and has an Alaskan sleuth, but this book is set Outside (gasp!). We think you’ll still enjoy it.

    Register for Virtual Alaska Story Hour for Adults.
