"The Adventures of Tom & Huck" Performance @ Your Library

The Fairbanks Branch Library is pleased to announce that Express Theatre will present a performance of "The Adventures of Tom & Huck" in the library's meeting room on Wednesday, July 6, at 3pm.  In this musical adaptation of Mark Twain's novels about boyhood friends, it would seem that some things never change.  Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are always trying to get around the rules.  After all, no self-respecting kid can pass up a good adventure.  Follow these rascals and their friends--and foes--as they whitewash a fence, play hooky, find a cure for warts, attend their own funeral, get lost in a cave, and solve a murder mystery.  So save the date and we'll see you at the performance!

Picnic Pests

Warm weather and sunshine make me think of making sandwiches and potato salad and going on a picnic in the park.  I like picnics, but not the ants and other bugs that want to share my picnic food--or me!  But, those picnic pests are just part of being outdoors, and to make it easier to put up with them there is a new display of fiction and nonfiction books at the Fairbanks Branch Library for your reading pleasure--"Picnic Pests."  Check out the titles on display on your next visit to the library and take some books on your next picnic to share with family and friends--not the bugs!  Happy Reading!

Gunk and Muck Reads @ Your Library

Sink Your Teeth into a Good Book!

One of the things I like to do when I was growing up was to visit the zoo.  I was fascinated by the different types of animals and could walk around for hours looking at the lions, zebras, bears, and various types of birds that were part of the zoo's collection.  But I never lingered long at the alligator pool; I would take a quick look and move on.  I never trusted those alligators--and still don't!  Now, I may not like to get too close to the alligators at the zoo, but I do like to read about them and crocodiles as well.  We have a new browsing display here at the library of informational books and picture story books about alligators and crocodiles for you to "sink your teeth into."  Ouch! and Happy Reading!
