What's Your Favorite Christmas Movie?

While talking about our all-time favorite Christmas movies, someone suggested that I turn our discussion into a blog post. There is no shortage of Christmas movies on TV, but you might have to put in a request to watch some of our favorites.

Did you miss the book sale?

The Fairbanks Friends of the Library held a book sale last Saturday, but there are still plenty of hardcover bestsellers left. The books are in like-new condition and would make excellent holiday gifts for the book lover in your life. Hardcover books are $2 each. And if you're not great at wrapping presents, pick up a Harris County Public Library book bag for $2 while you're at it. The book bags come in red, blue, and dark green.

 We have books written by many different authors. Here are some of the authors that we have in stock:
