Loussac Library Hours Update

Starting on May 22, the Loussac Library will be closed on Sundays. The decision to close was made in order to improve patron services for more frequently used days. The Municipality of Anchorage remains committed to utilizing its resources in the most efficient and effective way possible to maintain services citywide.

Branch libraries will remain open Tuesday through Saturday during regularly scheduled hours. See full location and hours information at https://bit.ly/APLHoursAndLocations.

Hoopla Borrowing Limit Update

As part of Anchorage Public Library’s pandemic response, borrowing limits for Hoopla Digital were temporarily increased to ten borrows, per library card, per month. While we were thrilled to offer this increased service connecting patrons to digital materials, current APL collection budgets can no longer support the additional borrows.

Effective June 1- borrows will return to eight per library card, per month.

We encourage patrons to watch for quarterly “Bonus Borrow” promotions from Hoopla, which allow for unlimited borrows from their featured titles, as well as using the Alaska Digital Library through the free Libby App or online portal.
