'Listening' for the Holidays

It's Holiday time and many people will take some vacation time and schools will be out for the holiday break as well.  To help celebrate your time to relax, visit friends and relatives, shop, and whatever you like to do, please consider selecting some recorded books for your listening pleasure during the holidays.  The Fairbanks Branch library has recorded books collections for kids, tweens & teens, and adults.  So, come on by the library and browse our recorded books and check some out and curl up in your favorite to listen or while you are in your car.  Recorded books make a great way to entertain everyone while on a trip.  Happy Holidays and Happy Reading!
