Olympics

Saturday Happenings for the Family

Join us for Faithful Paws and a family storytime celebrating the Olympics at the Fairbanks Library on Saturday, February 17.
All school-age kids are welcome to practice their reading skills by reading a story to a furry, certified, non-judgmental audience starting at 2 pm. The kids can bring their own book or choose one from the library collection.

At the storytime we'll be reading winter sports books and making a craft. There will also be a contest for kids, teens, AND adults! The storytime starts at 3:30, but come in anytime to participate in the contest. The winner will be contacted on Monday, February 19.

For both programs, please call 713-466-4438

Winter Olympics Curling Game

The Winter Olympic Games are upon us, and to celebrate we will be having a fun game of Curling on Thursday February 15 @ 4:30 PM. Curling is a game in which members of a team try to control the direction and speed of a round flat stone by sweeping the surface of the ice in the stone's path. Kids ages 6-12 are invited to play our own non-ice modified version of this game and will receive an Olympic Games Diploma.

For more information about this fun program, please contact the branch at 832-927-5530.
