A short history of the Ad Lib

Ketchikan Public Library staff members have been writing articles for the Ketchikan Daily News at least as early as 1974, when the Library Log became a regular column in the newspaper. The current iteration of the column, called Ad Lib, began sometime before 2006.

Ad Lib is a weekly column published in the weekend edition of the Daily News, with information about Library books, services, programs, and issues of interest to the community. We are very grateful to the Ketchikan Daily News for giving us space in the newspaper for this column, and for giving us permission to post older Ad Lib columns to this site.

If you have questions, concerns or ideas for this site, please contact Ketchikan Public Library Director Pat Tully at 907-228-2311, or
