Like the Video Store, But FREE

Want to know how you can watch movies for free  --  LEGALLY?  Harris County Public Libraries have a huge collection of new movies, old movies, new TV shows, old TV shows and educational videos, on DVDs and VHS tapes.  You check them out just like you check out books, except books check out for 2 weeks and videos check out for 1 week.  Also, you have to be at least 18 years old to check out videos.  If you want to see what DVDs have been added to the library system recently, just go to our web page, point at "Movies," and click "New Titles."

Are we there yet?

If you haven’t been on your summer vacation yet, you’re running out of time. Do you know where you want to go? Do you know what you want to see and do once you get there? As usual, the library can be a great help. There are over 300 travel books just at the Fairbanks branch, and the other branches have hundreds more that can be sent to Fairbanks for your convenience. They are from such famous travel publishers as Fodor’s, Frommer’s, Rick Steves, Mobil, and Moon Handbooks. There are tons about the U.S. and Europe, some on Canada, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and a few on Australia, the Middle East, and Africa. So, no matter where you want to go on vacation (or have to go on business), library books can help you figure out what to see, what to do, where to stay, where to eat, and what to buy while you’re there.

Long Commute? Quiet Time at Home?

CDHello, my name is Luanna Adams.  I’m the Branch Librarian at the Fairbanks Branch Library.  I am one of the staff members who will be posting to this new branch blog.  One of the things I will do with this space is tell you about library services that you may not know about.  Today, I want to focus on our audio collection.
