Upcoming events at the Fairbanks Library

Teens in 6th -12th grades are invited to join us this week, on Friday the 13th, at 3:30 pm, for a scary movie about a family that is trying to prevent evil spirits from trapping their comatose child in a realm called the Further. Click here to find out the title. This movie is rated PG-13. Popcorn and drinks will be provided.

Also, as a result of our recent flood, a group call Texans Recovering Together will be presenting a program in the library’s meeting room on Wednesday, May 18, at 1:30, about disaster assistance and recovery. Click here for a larger view of the flyer.

Comics & Graphic Novels

It is almost time for the school semester to end and that means that you can keep on reading but select some of the fun books you would like to read.  Some of those books may be comics and graphic novels, so the library has a special display of comics and graphic novels that are in the library collection.  Take a look on your next visit to the library and you may find some titles you will want to read when summer vacation starts--or read now, too!  Happy Reading!

Celebrating Mother's Day

This coming Sunday, May 8, is Mother's Day and I hope that you are planning to observe the day with a special celebration for your Mom.  To help you celebrate this special day, the library has a display of picture books featuring Moms that are appropriate for sharing with younger readers.  Please browse these titles on your next visit to the library and check out some of the books to read and share.  Happy Mother's Day and Happy Reading!
