Costumes 'R Us @ Your Library

Did you see anyone wearing a robe and curlers at the Fairbanks Branch Library recently?  Maybe, a couple of the staff at the library dressed like that?  And, did you see one of the library staff dressed like a cat and wearing ears, some yarn, and occasionally biting a piece of yarn?  You didn't?  Then you missed out on our staff costume day at the library.  But, here is a picture to see what you missed.  Some day in the future the staff will have another costume day.  So, stay tuned...same library, same staff ready to brighten your day and help you find the information and recreational material you need.  Happy Reading!

The Bear Necessities

Children's picture book stories about bears seem to be ever popular reading and hard to resist.  So, it's time to get comfortable and cozy and read and share some bear stories.  To help you in selecting some stories, we have a display of picture books, "The Bear Necessities" for your browsing pleasure.  Please be sure and take a look at it on your next visit to the library.  If we don't have your favorite story (or stories), please ask us to interlibrary loan it for you.  Happy Reading!
