Senior Game Day Hasn’t Ended!

CardsThose nice ladies from the Precinct 4 Commissioner’s office don’t drive all the way from Huffman to Fairbanks to host Senior Game Day any more, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop!  Anyone age 50 or better is still welcome to come to the Fairbanks Library meeting room on the 3rd and 4th Tuesday of each month to play cards, dominoes or trivia games or your favorite board game from home.  The fun starts at 1 pm and the next three dates are March 25, April 15 and April 22.  [Clipart © JupiterImages.com]

Spring Break & Library Requests

Spring BreakIf you have requested a library item from another branch and you realize that it is likely to arrive when you are out of town, you can suspend your request until a more convenient date, without losing your place in line.  To suspend a request through our web site, go to “my account,” log in with your library card number and PIN, and click “hold requests.” Next to “Requested items not yet available,” select the date that you want the hold to reactivate, put check marks in the boxes next to the items you want to suspend and click the “change status” button.  That’s it.  Your requests will automatically reactivate on the date that you chose.  Feel free to talk to the staff about suspending requests.

Help With Income Tax Forms

Tax form 1040It’s time again to fill out those pesky income tax forms.  Fortunately, AARP volunteers trained by the IRS will once again be at the Fairbanks Library 3 days per week to help people complete and file their federal income tax forms.  There are no age or income requirements for receiving help from the volunteers.  They will be here from February 1 through April 14, Mondays from 1 pm - 5 pm, Thursdays from 1 pm - 5 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am - 2 pm.  The volunteers offer assistance only in person (not by telephone) and only on a first come, first served basis (no appointments).

Yes, We're Open!

Book Sale Saturday, December 7

Book sale 2The Friends of the Fairbanks Library are having a book sale Saturday, Dec. 7, from 10 am-3 pm.  They are selling dozens of books that look brand new and would make fabulous, inexpensive Christmas gifts (about $2 each).  They also have music CDs, books on CD, DVDs, and lots of VHS tapes.  Come to the sale Saturday and spend lots of money.  It’s all used to pay for library materials and programs.
