The new North Pole Branch Library at 656 NPHS Boulevard opened in November 2014 and features a large multi-purpose room, collections of books, music and movies for all ages, children’s and teen specific areas, wifi, a fireplace lounge, study rooms, art from Alaskan artists, a community garden and walking paths.
