Summer Volunteering

 

Do you like books?  Are you good at organizing and alphabetizing?  Do you enjoy being around kids, and dressing up in fun costumes?  If you are 14 years old, or older, you can apply to volunteer to help with Summer Reading, shelving, and more.  Orientation is Monday, June 6, at 10:30 AM.  Stop by the library for an application, or get one right here.

Go Green

Go green with great reads for Earth Day!  Celebrate Earth Day with a book about being green, or maybe just a book that's green. While you're here, you can visit the park next door, or maybe check out some books on gardening or tree planting, in preparation for Arbor Day, next week.

Libraries Transform Your Life!


Celebrate National Library week, by learning about the many ways that your neighborhood library can transform your life.  You can broaden your horizons and build your resume, by learning new languages and keeping up with new technology.  We offer free informative and entertaining programs for all ages, from infants to seniors.  For more information, visit our Facebook page, or visit us at the Fairbanks Library.

Sweet Reads

Looking for a Valentine's Day treat?  We have a great selection of sweet stories on display for all ages.  Kids can pick a picture book, and a Valentine's Day coloring sheet.  Teens can choose a Young Adult romance, and a "Mortal Instruments" or "To All the Boys I've Love Before" valentine.  Adventurous adults can go on a "Blind Date with a Book", complete with a handmade heart-shaped bookmark, while supplies last.

Go Red

 

This Friday, February 5, is National Wear Red Day. We will be wearing red, and we encourage you to join in, wear red, and learn more about the risk of heart disease. You can visit the American Heart Association's special website for helpful information, and stop by the library this Saturday, February 6, between 10:00 am and 1:00 pm, for a free blood pressure screening.

Challenge Yourself in 2016

Challenge yourself to read better, harder, or more books in 2016.  The library has a wide selection of books, with something for everyone, and we want 2016 to be a year of great reads, where you discover stories and characters that take you to new places.  Pick up a reading challenge from the popular adult fiction display, or follow one of the links below to get started.  After you choose a challenge, you can get personalized reading recommendations from HCPL's Book Hunters, or by visiting the library.  Oh, and if you're wondering how best to keep track of all the great books you're about to start reading, we highly recommend GoodReads.

Make a Difference—Volunteer

You can make a huge difference in someone’s life, by volunteering to be an ESL tutor.  Attend one of our upcoming training sessions to learn how to teach English as a Second Language.  You can meet with students once or more per week, at your library, and help them to learn to speak, read, and understand the English language.  To register, contact the literacy coordinator at 713-274-6620.
