Donate Someone Else’s Money!

You can help pay for library materials and programs with someone else’s money!  All you have to do is get a Kroger cashier to scan your Kroger Plus card and the Friends of the Fairbanks Library’s barcode.  After that, when you use your Kroger Plus card, the Friends will earn points for an annual check from Kroger.  Please ask the library staff for the Friends' barcode.  Kroger PlusPlusKroger BarcodeEquals
