Summer Winner

FBAdultSRP2012Virginia has been a Fairbanks Library customer for several years now, and I’m sure it has paid off in many ways.  This summer, though, it paid off in dollars.  Just for participating in our adult Summer Reading Program and reading at least 5 books between June 4 and August 11, Virginia won a $30 gift card.  Virginia, we hope you get something that you will enjoy a lot.  The rest of you might want to keep this opportunity in mind when next June rolls around.  Reading is fun anyway, and the chance to win a prize just makes it more fun.

Sunday is National Dog Day

National Dog Day, celebrated annually on August 26, aims to honor dogs and to rescue them from homelessness and abuse. Take the time to give the dogs in your life a hug or pat on the head for giving their loyalty, love, and companionship. Working dogs aid people with handicaps and work with law enforcement to help with search and rescue, or even to sniff out bombs or drugs.

Because dogs sometimes need us to save them, the National Dog Day foundation's goal is to rescue 10,000 dogs a year. To find out more about how you can help, visit
