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.

Mad Science

It's a brand new school semester and for students needing to think about science fair projects, the Fairbanks Branch Library has a new display of science fair project books to help you.  Please browse the display and you can find books about science projects involving chemistry, physics, astronomy, food and other subjects.  If you don't find what you need, please ask us to help you find material for you.  Don't forget that we can interlibrary loan books from other locations for you.  Happy Experimenting!
