By sharing resources and working together to build library collections and to increase access to information via technology, more materials and services can be provided in a more cost-effective manner. The automated card catalog includes all the materials at the four sites. The materials at each site are available for use by all the members of our community. Materials from the schools may be borrowed through the public library or directly from the school media centers. Materials at the Sheldon Museum and Cultural Center may only be used in the museum building. The first Haines Public Library was started by the Haines Women's Club. It was located in a 12' X 12' building at the Alaska Steamship Office. Later, on May 22, 1931, the Haines Women's Club incorporated under the title of "The Haines Library Association" and purchased a 12' X 25' frame house on Main Street. This building is now at the Chilkoot Cultural Camp. By 1957 it was time to grow once again. The Haines Women's Club purchased the land where the current library stands and with the help of many volunteers built a new library, opening officially in August 1958.
