Gardening Time @ Your Library

It's that time of the year when the plants and trees in the area start growing and blooming, and you have to start thinking about lawn and garden maintenance.  To help you keep your lawn and garden in shape, the library has a new display of gardening and lawn books as suggested resources.  On your next visit to the library, please browse the "Gardening Resources" display and check out some of the books.  If we don't have what you need, please ask us to interlibrary loan other materials for you.  Happy Gardening!

Hear That Whistle Blow!

Can you hear that whistle blow?  Do you see that train coming down the track?  Then, it's time to climb aboard and take a trip to the Fairbanks Branch Library and browse our newest display of books which are all about trains.  Don't let those train whistles be lonesome and stuck at the station.  Check out some train books to take home to share with family and friends. Happy Reading!

April & Shakespeare

ShakespeareAs far as I can tell, no one has ever declared April to be International Shakespeare Month, but I think they should.  Most people agree that he was the most important playwright in the history of the English language.  He is thought to have been born around April 23, 1564, and he died April 23, 1616.  In case you would like to honor him by reading some of his plays this month, I’ve done some research and found that many people think that Shakespeare’s best-loved tragedies are Romeo&nbs
