You can become a Library Patron with checkout privileges from the library by:
- If you are a local resident who can provide mail addressed to yourself at a local post box, you can get a library card at no cost.
- If you are not a resident, you may obtain a temporary library card by providing a valid mailing address outside of Seward. Temporary patrons are limited to three items at checkout.
SCL welcomes volunteers to help at the library. Volunteers are encouraged in the following areas:
- Storyhour assistance
- Checking that books are in order on shelf
- Shelving books and media
- Sorting and assembling for the Book Sale
- Gardening during summer months
If you are interested in volunteering or completing community service hours, please contact Amy via email or phone (224-4082).
Books, Videos and other material for the library.
Books donated to the library will be considered by the director for inclusion into the collection. If it is decided that the book will not be put in the collection it will be put in the Book Sale to be sold. All money from the Book Sale goes to the Seward Community Library Association. These funds are used to support library programs and purchasing books and other media.

One of the many projects the Friends has undertaken is creating access to our many historic photos. We are currently working with The Alaska Virtual Library and Digital Archive project to create access to our collection. This is being done through a grant from the Alaska Humanities Forum.
