It's Raining Books about Cats & Dogs!

Well, not really "raining" books, but the Fairbanks Branch Library does have many books in our collection about cats and dogs.  Several of those titles are now in a new display at the library and you are encouraged to browse the display on your next visit to the library.  The library staff is happy to help you find books and materials you need, so please don't hesitate to ask us if you don't find what you need.  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

Week of the Young Child Celebration

Save the date!  The Fairbanks Branch Library will celebrate the upcoming Week of the Young Child (April 14-19) with a special program during Preschool Storytime on Tuesday, April 09, at 10:30 am.  Storytime will feature a DVD with a Curious George program episode followed by songs and activities.  Don't miss this exciting and fun program!  See you then!

Time to Play Ball!

Peanuts!  Cracker Jacks!  Cold sodas!  Hot Dogs!  Yes, it's time for that great American pastime...Baseball!  Players are getting into uniform and having batting practice to get ready for a springtime and summer of games.  If you are a baseball fan, please browse our new display of baseball themed books here at the Fairbanks Branch Library.  Hopefully, you will books to checkout, and don't forget that we can interlibrary loan materials for you if we don't have it here.  So, Batter Up! and Happy Reading!
