Flowers @ Your Library

The Spring season certainly has begun in Houston and more and more plants and trees are growing and showing lots of bright colors.  I have noticed more flowers blooming recently and gathered a selection of books from the library collection for a display on flowers.  If you need some good books as resources for what flowers to plant for this area and how to take care of them, please come by the Fairbanks Branch and we can help you find what you need.  As always, if we do not have the material here, we can interlibrary loan it for you.  Happy Reading and Happy Gardening!

The Funny Zone

As April 1st comes closer, all you kids--and some adults, too--may be thinking about some of your favorite jokes and riddles you like to share with your friends and family.  To help you find new knock-knock jokes, elephant jokes, shaggy dog stories, riddles, and other funny material, please browse our "The Funny Zone" display of books.  You do not want to be caught short when someone asks you, "How can you tell if an elephant has been in your refrigerator?"  Happy Reading!

Stories for Bedtime

Do you remember having a story or stories read to you at bedtime?  You probably had some favorite bedtime stories--I know that I certainly did.  To help you find some of those favorite bedtime stories and to discover some new stories to share, there is a new display for your browsing pleasure--"Bedtime Stories."  You will find stories about dreams, stories about wishes, lots and lots of stories!  Please take a look and checkout some stories to share.  Happy Reading!

Wild Weather @ Your Library

One of the first things you learn when you live in the Houston area is that if you do not like the weather, then just wait for an hour or so and the weather probably will change.  We certainly have had quite a few days lately of warm, muggy weather alternating with days of cooler weather for which you need to wear a coat or jacket.  And, lots and lots of rain the last few days as well.  Weather often changes dramatically, so we have created a new display of books about the weather for your browsing pleasure.  Please take a look on your next visit to the library and checkout some titles.  If you do not find what you need, please ask us and we will interlibrary loan material for you.  Happy Reading!
