Singing the Schoolhouse Blues @ Your Library

Well, it's almost that time of the year when summer vacation is over and classes for the Fall semester start at the local schools.  To help younger students make the transition from summertime activities to "reading, writing, and arithmetic" we have created the "Singing the Schoolhouse Blues" display of picture books about schools, teachers, and students.  Please browse the books in the display and you should find some fun stories to read before it's "back to school!"  Happy Reading!

Friendship

Friendship Day takes place the first Sunday of August and is celebrated all over the world. It is believed that the U.S. Congress created the holiday in 1935.

So what do you do on Friendship Day? Well for starters, you can say hello to new and old friends by giving them a call or sending a greeting card. If you're on Facebook, you can use your status update to tell your friends about Friendship Day and encourage them to spread the word.

Here are some friendship books that we have checked in at Fairbanks:
