Winging Into Spring

The season of Spring is starting to seem closer and closer as some warmer weather comes to the area and some plants and trees begin to blossom.  The Fairbanks Branch Library is celebrating the coming of spring-like weather with a new display of books, "Winging Into Spring."  We have started the display with an interesting selection of books about butterflies and we encourage you to browse the display on your next visit to the library.  You can find some titles to check out and share with others and celebrate the coming of Spring.  Happy Reading!

Spring Break & Library Requests

Spring BreakIf you have requested a library item from another branch and you realize that it is likely to arrive when you are out of town, you can suspend your request until a more convenient date, without losing your place in line.  To suspend a request through our web site, go to “my account,” log in with your library card number and PIN, and click “hold requests.” Next to “Requested items not yet available,” select the date that you want the hold to reactivate, put check marks in the boxes next to the items you want to suspend and click the “change status” button.  That’s it.  Your requests will automatically reactivate on the date that you chose.  Feel free to talk to the staff about suspending requests.

Four Leaf Clover Reading @ Your Library

It's that time of the year for celebrating St. Patrick's Day and the Fairbanks Branch Library has created a display of books related to St. Patrick's Day and Ireland.  For some interesting Four Leaf Clover reading, please browse the display on your next visit to the library and select some titles to check out and share with friends and family.  Remember, a good book is like a treasure at the end of the rainbow!  Happy Reading!

Read an eBook Week

Have you ever read an eBook?  eBooks are great for traveling or anytime that you can’t make it into the library, and they enable you to bring virtual stacks of books with you wherever you go.  Read an eBook Week starts this Sunday, and it’s the perfect time to try downloading and reading, or listening, to an eBook.
