Summer Fun @ Fairbanks

Summer Reading starts Monday, June 6, and we have tons of fun activities planned.  Our teen summer program, for grades 6-12, gets underway this weekend, with the first of our weekly movie screenings, and our first video game tournament of the season.  Join us on Friday, June 3, at 1:00 PM for a screening of the sci-fi thriller, War of the Worlds, complete with fresh popcorn and cold drinks.  Join us Saturday, June 4, at 2:00 PM to play Super Smash Bros. Brawl on Nintendo Wii.  While you're here, you can pick up a Teen Summer Reading Calendar at the front desk, so you don't miss any of our upcoming events.

Summer Reading Program Kickoff Party

Save the date!  Circle Tuesday, June 7 on your calendar to be sure you remember to be at the Summer Reading Program Kickoff Party at 2:00 PM in the library meeting room.  You can meet Orbit, the Astros mascot, have some refreshments, and sign up for the 2016 Summer Reading Program which is for all ages, from babies to adults.  Don't miss out on this fun event.  Happy Reading and see you there.

Zombie Awareness Month

Did you know that May is Zombie Awareness Month?  That it is a time to bring awareness about zombies and the possibility of a future zombie apocalypse?  If you did not, then you need to read some books about the walking dead and how to not become one.  Lurch on over to the library and check our display of zombie reading and get a leg up on how to avoid being undead and unread. 

Summer Volunteering


Do you like books?  Are you good at organizing and alphabetizing?  Do you enjoy being around kids, and dressing up in fun costumes?  If you are 14 years old, or older, you can apply to volunteer to help with Summer Reading, shelving, and more.  Orientation is Monday, June 6, at 10:30 AM.  Stop by the library for an application, or get one right here.
