The Kodiak Public Library Association will hold a public meeting tonight at the teen center. The goal of tonight’s meeting is to gather more public input on where to build a new library in Kodiak. Nine potential sites are currently under consideration. The board has been gathering information about each of the sites in an effort to follow up on questions that were posed at the last public meeting. Paul Converse serves on the board of the association.
