Celebrating Grandparents

Just like we celebrate Moms and Dads, we celebrate Grandmothers and Grandfathers.  Many of the picture books in the library's children's collection are stories about grandparents, and we have a new display of some of those titles for you to browse on your next visit to the library.  Please take a look and check some out to share with family and friends.  As always, ask us about interlibrary loaning books that you can't find here at the Fairbanks Branch Library.  Happy Reading!

Are You Ready for Some Football?

It is that time of the year when professional, college, and school football games start up.  Football fans have their favorite teams and love to watch games at the stadium or on television.  To help you enjoy the season, the Fairbanks Branch Library has a new display of football books for your reading pleasure.  Please browse the display on your next visit to the library, and check out some books to take home.  Don't forget that we can interlibrary loan books for you if we don't have them in the collection here at the library.  Happy Reading!

Fall Volunteers Needed

With the end of summer vacation and the start of back to school, the library is looking for new volunteers.  If you love reading and need volunteer hours for school, or would just like to help your community, we would love to have you.  Library volunteers help with shelving, book sales, and other projects as needed.  You can download an application or pick one up at the front desk.  Both teens and adults are welcome.  New volunteer orientations are given Mondays at noon.  For more information on volunteering click here.
