Make Your Summer "Count" @ Your Library

Just because school is out for the summer and you have no math homework, that does not mean that you can't have some fun with numbers and how to use them.  There are many fun books using math and your library here at Fairbanks Branch has a special display of math books to amuse and challenge you as you enjoy the summer vacation.  On your next visit to the library, please take a look at the "Go Figure!" display and find a book you like.  If you don't find what you want, please ask us and we can interlibrary loan the book you need.
