Summer Reading Ends Soon

Gift cardThe Summer Reading Programs officially end on Saturday, August 7. So, hurry up and record all the books you’ve read since June 4. For kids and teens, it could mean a free book and maybe a satin ribbon. For adults, reading and logging 4 books means a chance at a bookstore gift card valued at $50-$200! If you have questions, ask the library staff.

Star Readers @ Your Library

The Summer Reading Program continues at the Fairbanks Branch Library and I want to remind all Kids Readers that if you complete reading 50 books, then you receive a red ribbon with "Star Reader" in gold lettering.  So, keep on reading, reading, and reading this summer and you will be a "Star Reader" @ Your Library.  I look forward to awarding a lot of red ribbons! 

Reading for School

TimelineJust a reminder - The summer break is halfway over. If you’re required to do summer reading for school, you might want to come in and check out a book now. Lots of people will be checking them out right before school starts, so there will be a shortage then.

What a Woman!

Fall flowersThe Fairbanks Library is so lucky! We have a customer [We’ll call her Mrs. O] who loves plants of all kinds (outdoor, potted, silk) and is happy to share them and some charming knickknacks and other decorative items with the library. She comes in every week or so and waters the plants that need water and swaps out plants and decorations. She makes a very big difference in the appearance of the library.
