Books About Football

Football!  It's that time of the year to head out to the stadiums or relax in front of a television screen to watch you favorite teams play.  To help you find books to read about the game and even how to coach football, the Fairbanks Branch Library has a new display for your browsing pleasure--"Are You Ready for Some Football?"  Please check it out on your next visit to the library and Happy Reading!

Costumes 'R Us @ Your Library

Did you see anyone wearing a robe and curlers at the Fairbanks Branch Library recently?  Maybe, a couple of the staff at the library dressed like that?  And, did you see one of the library staff dressed like a cat and wearing ears, some yarn, and occasionally biting a piece of yarn?  You didn't?  Then you missed out on our staff costume day at the library.  But, here is a picture to see what you missed.  Some day in the future the staff will have another costume day.  So, stay tuned...same library, same staff ready to brighten your day and help you find the information and recreational material you need.  Happy Reading!
