Digging Old Stuff

Next Saturday, October 22, Kleb Woods Nature Center in Tomball will host their annual "Digging Old Stuff" event. I went a few years ago and thought it was a great outing for a fall weekend. They have live music, blacksmiths, spinners & weavers, candle-making, fabric dyeing, woodworkers, and more. Click here for more information. 

Reminders about Good Stuff

I just wanted to make sure you don't forget two wonderful services offered by HCPL and Harris County Precinct 4.
First of all, remember that the Fairbanks Library offers free computer classes, including Computer Basics, Beginner Internet, Beginner Email, Beginner and Intermediate Microsoft Word, and Beginner and Intermediate Microsoft Excel, among others. Click here for the class schedule.
Also, if you're age 50 or better, Harris County Precinct 4 offers an outstanding variety of events and excursions. They have recently updated their web site so that you can register online and you can see which excursions still have space available.
These are great opportunities for learning and for fun!

Library Card Sign-up Month

Adult lib cardSome people come to the library all the time but don't have a library card. They probably don't realize that your first library card is FREE, and it only takes a few minutes to get one. Also, if you're only going to use our digital resources (eBooks, eAudio, databases, streaming movies, TV shows, and music, etc.), you don't even need to come to the library to set up a library card account. You can do it online! September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, so now is a perfect time to get an account set up and start taking advantage of all your library offers!

Math & Physics-Grades 6-12

PhysicsWe are trying something new at the Fairbanks Library. We have two volunteers that will be available to help 6th-12th graders with their math or physics homework on Wednesdays from 3:30-4:30. If you're a student in need of help, just stop by our meeting room during that time period.
