Kettleson Memorial Library is a public library serving the City and Borough of Sitka since March 20, 1923.  It is now tax supported, but owes a great debt of gratitude to the Sitka Library Association, whose volunteers provided library service in Sitka for nearly fifty years.  Our building was built in 1967 with a gift from Theodore Kettleson, a long time Sitka resident.  Additional funds came from the Library Services and Construction Act, and gifts from other generous Sitka citizens. An addition, which more than doubled the library's size, was completed in 1983. We are proud of our beautiful setting and excellent library service supported by Sitka's citizens.
