The Digital Media Catalog

Digital MediaThere used to be a large box near the top center of our home page that said “Digital Media Catalog.”  You used to click that box to get to our ebooks and downloadable audio.  Then “they” redesigned the web page.  Fear not; it’s still easy to get there.  You just click this icon now.  It’s on the right, about 2½” down.

Intro to Library eBooks

EreadersDo you have an iPad, a Kindle, or a Nook?  Did you know that you can borrow ebooks for free through the library’s Digital Media Catalog?  If you’d like some help getting started, bring your ereader to the library meeting room on Wednesday, March 7, at 3:00.  We are hosting a library ebook demonstration in celebration of Read an eBook Week, which is March 4-10.  Please call us at (713) 466-4438 to register and let us know which type of device you’ll be bringing.  If you don’t have an ereader yet, we have some that you can look at and learn about.

Help Wanted

Help WantedOur neighbors in the Fairbanks area are very generous when it comes to donating books to the Friends of the Library.  Many of the books look almost brand new.  In spite of this, there are always plenty of books left over after a book sale.  So, the Friends need volunteers to sell the books online through Amazon.com.  Duties would include listing the books on the Amazon web site and shipping them when they’re purchased.  Please leave your name and number with the staff if you’re interested.  [Clipart © Jupiter Images]

Help with Income Tax Forms!

Income taxNever fear, help is here!  Starting this Saturday, February 4, volunteer members of AARP, who have been trained by the IRS, will be here to help people complete their 2011 federal income tax forms.  There are no age or income requirements, and they can file returns electronically.  And, it’s all FREE.  They will be in the meeting room here at the Fairbanks Library on Saturdays, from 10 am to 2 pm, and on Mondays and Tuesdays, from 1 to 5 pm.  Please bring all of the relevant documents with you.  [Clipart © Jupiter Images]

Get Organized!

Because January is Get Organized Month, I’d like to point out that your public library has oodles of books that teach you how to get organized.  Oddly, the subject heading for them is “orderliness.”  Here’s a small sample:
