Reading About Bugs!

Some bugs you may like, some bugs you may not.  But whether yes or no, the fact that remains that bugs are everywhere.  If you want to learn more about different kinds of bugs, please browse one of our newest displays here at the library.  "Reading About Bugs" features books about bumblebees, butterflies, spiders, and many other types of bugs.  Take a look on your next visit to the library and check out some books and share what you learn with family and friends.  Happy Reading!

Celebrating Poetry

If, as the saying goes, "April showers bring May flowers," the month of April also brings time to celebrate the art of poetry.  To give yourself and family and friends a treat, please check our latest display at the library which celebrates books of poetry especially for young readers.  "Celebrating Poetry" features various authors whose verses will delight and amuse you.  Happy Reading!

...But the Cover is Green!

Sometimes, have you forgotten the author and title of a book you want to read, but all you can remember is the color of the cover?  I have done that myself, and it's just something that happens to everyone.  So, the staff here at Fairbanks got to thinking about a display of books that have a predominant color for the cover, and we came up with "Green" as the theme.  "I Don't Remember the Title...But the Cover is Green!" has a selection of titles that all have green covers but that is all.  Check it out and see if there is a book with a green cover that you want to read.  Happy Reading!

Spring Cleaning!

It certainly seems like springtime is already here in Houston even though it is only mid-March.  In case you have begun to think about doing some spring cleaning, then we have some great recommendations for books to help you plan and complete your projects.  Please browse our display, "Spring Cleaning," and hopefully you will find some to check out.  If not, please don't forget that we can interlibrary loan titles from other branches in the library system.  Happy Reading and Happy Spring Cleaning!
