Have you ever wondered why those books are in the front hallway of the library? Kind, generous people have donated them to the Friends of the Fairbanks Library. They are the main source of income for the Friends of the Library. So, please, stop and browse the shelves. There is a great selection. If you find books, magazines, or videos that you want, donate some money (in the box attached to the top of one of the shelves) and take them home with you. Your donations pay for library programs and materials. Also, please keep the Friends in mind when you're cleaning off your shelves at home. They are always looking for books, CDs, DVDs, etc., that are in good condition so that they can raise money for more library programs and materials.
