As Anchorage's center for public education, arts, recreation and workforce development, the Loussac Library is a key element in our city's vitality. However, the physical layout of the building is keeping the library from becoming what the community envisions.
The entrance renovation is a first step toward reinventing the way our library serves the community. Key features of this transformational project include:
The renovation is scheduled for completion in spring 2017.
"In these times of state spending cuts and belt-tightening, it's important to protect our centers of innovation and information as investments in the future. Institutions like the Loussac Library are crucial to giving Alaska's next generation of leaders and innovators the tools and support they need to succeed and thrive here in the Last Frontier."

Loussac Renewal and Facility Master Plan
The Loussac Library Renewal is a once-in-a-generation renovation of one of our city’s most important and well-used institutions. The first project of the Renewal, the entrance renovation was a major recommendation of the 2013 Loussac Master Plan.
A year in the making, the Loussac Master Plan is a result of detailed planning by architects, designers, technology and library experts, and thoughtful and creative input from thousands of community members. The Plan sets a path to transform the Loussac into a dynamic and interactive hub for community engagement.
