Need a mini vacay?

If you're short on vacation time and cash but want to treat the family to a great experience, consider going to Abilene for the weekend of June 14. The imaginative world of Dr. Seuss is taking over downtown Abilene! The whole family can take a tour of his most famous and hidden works at the National Center for Children's Illustrated Literature and at The Center for Contempory Arts. And the kids will love dramatic presentations from eight different Dr. Seuss books throughout the weekend. Where else can they meet the characters, see the movies, and gaze at the many artworks of Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss)?

Would You Like to . . . ?

understand your true nature?
recognize the foundations on which some of your belief systems were built?
discover that no two thoughts can occupy the same space at the same time?
discover ways to choose your thoughts, therefore choosing who and what you want to be?
gain insight on how to stay motivated?
If so, you’ll want to come to the library on Thursday, June 21, at 4:00 pm, to listen to Laura Washington.  Ms. Washington is a Christian scholar, a published author, and an experienced motivational speaker.  She would love to share what she has learned with you!

Congratulations graduates!

The Fairbanks Library wants to give the Class of 2012 a big pat on the back for all their hard work!

In the words of the great Dr. Seuss, 

"You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own.  And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go." ~ Oh, the Places You'll Go!
