August Family Evening Story Time

Please join us for our monthly family evening story time on Monday, August 30 at 7:00pm in the meeting here at the Fairbanks Branch Library.  We will have several picture book stories to share plus a fun and easy craft following the stories.  So, take a break from the beginning of the week and come out to your library.  See you Monday evening! 

But the Music Lives On

Music CDThis Sunday, August 29, would have been Michael Jackson’s birthday. The occasion can serve as a reminder that the music of Michael Jackson and others lives on in the music collections of libraries. Harris County Public Library has over 9800 album titles. You can find all of them by typing “sound recording music” in the catalog search box on our home page. You can find the music you are interested in by adding the genre, the artist, or a title to the search terms. You can also download music from our Digital Media Catalog! [Clipart ©JupiterImages.]

Reading About Creepy Creatures

Do you like to read about unusual creatures that live on the land and in the sea?  Then, visit the library and check out a new display of books--"Creepy Creatures."  Scary sharks and other critters that live in the sea, leeches, Tasmanian devils, and many more creatures that nobody loves or wants to meet.  You can find them in books here at the library, and if you don't, then we will request information for you with our Interlibrary Loan service.  See you soon! 

Kids in School = "Me Time" for Parents

School busNow that the kids are back in school, maybe you can get some reading done. You may want to take a look at the “Books” page on our web site for blog posts and links to bestseller lists, book reviews, genre lists, award lists, author interviews, newsletters, book club sites, other book-related sites, and staff favorites. And remember our fabulous NoveList Plus database, which I wrote about last January.

Boredom Busters! @ Your Library

As the summer vacation period is coming to an end, spice up the days before school starts with some fun books from our Boredom Busters! display here at the library.  We have selected some joke books, books of riddles, origami books, drawing books, and many others to challenge and entertain you.  If we do not have what you need, please ask at the circulation desk and we will be happy to request it for you.
