Resolutions 2014

2013 is almost history and 2014 about to begin.  As the new year is coming I think about the New Year's resolutions I should be considering and setting as goals to accomplish during 2014.  If you are like me, there are various things I would like to change and to accomplish.  If you need help planning and meeting your goals for the new year, the library has various resources to help you, such as books and audio recordings.  On your next visit to Fairbanks Branch, please browse our new display--"Resolutions 2014"--to see just a few of the titles available for you to use.  Have a Happy New Year and Happy Reading for making 2014 one of your best years ever.

Fireside Thrillers

 

 Some of my best time for reading is when I can settle into my chair next to the fireplace and lose myself in a good story that can be termed a "thriller."  If you like to read "thrillers," please take a look at one of the library's newest displays, "Fireside Thrillers" and select some titles to check out and enjoy during the holiday period and at any time of the year.  Happy Reading!

Holiday Time Puppet Show

Happy Holidays!  To help you celebrate the holiday season the Fairbanks Branch Library will present a puppet show program on Monday, December 23rd, at 2:30pm in the library's meeting room.  Please join us and meet some of your favorite puppet characters in several well-known stories.  So, take a break from holiday preparations and shopping and join us for some holiday fun.  Happy Reading!

Seasonal Reading

It's that time of the year when the weather turns cooler and people are planning holiday activities.  But you need some time during the holiday period to sit down with a good book with younger members of your family and friends.  To assist you in selecting some holiday picture books, the library staff has a special display, "Seasonal Reading."  Please browse the books there on your next visit to the library and check out some books to share.  Happy Reading!

Classic Kids Literature

The other day some of the staff here at Fairbanks Branch Library were thinking about some of the books we really loved when we were growing up.  So, we decided to put together a new display of what we consider to be "classic" children's picture books and like to recommend to you for your pleasure.  Please browse the display--"Classic Kids Literature"--on your next visit to the library and check some out to share with family and friends.  If you have a favorite "classic" and we don't have it here at the library, please ask and we will interlibrary loan it for you.  Happy Reading!
