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!

Don't Wait!

Tax deadline 2016The tax deadline will be here before you know it. Get your taxes done ASAP so you won’t have to wait in the huge crowd of people wanting help with their tax returns on the last day. The AARP Foundation Tax-Aide volunteers are here at the Fairbanks Library on Mondays and Thursdays from 1 pm-5 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am-2 pm. If those days and times don't work for you, you can find other Tax-Aide locations on the AARP web site. There are no age or income requirements for this service.
