Get your tiara and veil ready

The Royal Wedding is tomorrow! The ladies at Fairbanks are all abuzz - especially those who watched Princess Diana float down the aisle nearly 30 years ago. I don't know if I'm going to wake up at 4 a.m. to watch the ceremony. It will probably be on YouTube, right?

Good Books for Your Reading Basket

Other than brightly colored eggs to put in your holiday basket, please consider adding some good books to read and share.  To help you find some fun titles, we have a display of recommended books by the staff here at the Fairbanks Branch.  Visit the library and browse the display, "Good Reading for Your Book Basket," and take some stories home with you.  Happy Reading!

April is National Poetry month and we have created a special display for the kiddos. Grab a few books from our "Giving Words a Voice" poetry display and read some rhymes to your little ones.

One of my favorites is Jack Prelutsky's Scranimals
