Make a donation

Is cleaning out your closet or office a New Year's Resolution this year? Fairbanks Library is happy to receive your no longer needed, gently used books, DVDs, and CDs. These materials are placed on the Friends of the Library Book Sale shelves in the lobby or are saved for the big, biannual book sale. (Whew! Say that three times fast!)

You may drop off your donation at the circulation desk during library hours. If your donation is large, staff members will help you bring it inside. Please do not leave donation materials in the book drop or outside near the library doors.

Get Organized!

Because January is Get Organized Month, I’d like to point out that your public library has oodles of books that teach you how to get organized.  Oddly, the subject heading for them is “orderliness.”  Here’s a small sample:
Organizing Inside Out


Reading About Famous People @ Your Library

If you like to read biographies about famous people and autobiographies that some people write about themselves, then please browse a new display at the library, "Famous Lives."  You will find books about politicians, actors, world leaders, and many others either on the display or in the "Biography" section of the library.  If we do not have a biography of someone you want to read about, please let us know and we will interlibrary loan it for you.  Happy Reading!
