The original Z. J. Loussac Library, located at 427 F Street, was dedicated on June 1, 1955. During the Project 80's period, Anchorage voters approved construction of a new centralized library. Upon the destruction of the old Loussac in 1981, the library was temporarily moved to 524 West 6th Avenue. The new and current Z. J. Loussac Library at 3600 Denali Street celebrated its grand opening on September 14, 1986.
Loussac Library contains Anchorage’s Assembly Chambers on the ground floor. Library floors above house patron services, book and media collections, youth and adult programming spaces, public computers and a community Innovation Lab, a cafe, and the Alaska Collection Wing. In the quiet atmosphere of the Alaska Collection visitors can browse AK non-fiction books or DVDs, read or surf in the wood-paneled Ann Stevens Room, find books on Alaska Native history and culture, or locate articles from Alaskan newspapers on microfilm.
