The Unalaska Department of Parks, Culture, and Recreation (PCR) hosted their annual Christmas Event last Saturday, December the 2nd. At the event, community members shopped at the Christmas bazaar, took pictures with Santa, and listened to Christmas stories read by Karen Kresh of the library.

Designers are closing in on a final renovation plan for Unalaska’s public library, and they’re looking to give readers a lot more room to maneuver.

This week, architect Brian Meissner presented a handful of redesign options to the community and the Unalaska City Council.

His goal is to address the 18-year-old library’s biggest drawback.

“You’re short on great places to read — and places for people to interact for studying or otherwise," said Meissner, of ECI Alaska Architecture. "Very short for a library and a population of this size.”

This Saturday, Unalaska is hosting the inaugural Bering Sea Women’s Conference.

Organizer Beatriz Dietrick said the event has evolved from a clinic-sponsored health session into an independent storytelling conference.

KUCB’s Laura Kraegel sat down with Dietrick to learn more.



In the early morning hours of October 20th, during the 6th hour of the KUCB annual 24 hour pledge drive, two volunteers did a little research and decided to raise our goal higher than the $23,000 that staff was aiming for.

KUCB is where our community finds out what’s happening in Unalaska.  We are your news source, your community calendar, and a great source of entertainment. YOUR contribution makes it all possible.  KUCB has lost significant funding from the State of Alaska, and we depend on local support more than ever. THANK YOU.
