Are You Ready for Some Football?

Okay, gridiron and 'Friday night lights' fans, football season is on the way!  It is that time of year to get out your caps and sweatshirts with the logos for your favorite team(s) and make sure you stock up on your favorite game time snacks when you watch the game in front of the TV or in the stands.  To help you get in the spirit, the Fairbanks Library has a special book display featuring books about how the game is played, the NFL, the SuperBowl, college football, and more.  If we do not have the book you want, ask us to find a copy through our interlibrary loan service.  And for those who like "tailgaiting" before a game, check our cookbook section for ideas for some tasty eats.

Pajama and Slippers Storytime

Grab your favorite pajamas and slippers and head on down to the Fairbanks Branch Library for our monthly evening storytime which is scheduled for Monday, August 31 at 7:00 pm.  Bring your favorite teddy bear or plush toy with you and enjoy bedtime stories and a craft as we bid "aloha!" to the end of summer vacation.  Some of the library staff will be wearing their pajamas and slippers (bunny slippers for at least one of the staff) and have their special plush toy with them, so please be sure to visit the circulation desk and say "Hello!"  See you soon!

Of Summer Reading Lists We Sing

It is that time of the summer when many high school students seriously think about reading a book from the Summer Reading List for their grade level.  To assist our high school customers in selecting a book to read, the Fairbanks Branch Library created a display of the books for the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade reading lists.  Also, we have printed copies of the lists for your convenience.  School starts soon, so if you are a high school student in the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District, visit the library to find the book you want to read and be prepared for your English class.  As always as part of our customer services, if our copies of the book you want to read are already checked out, we will request a copy for you.  So, be prepared.  Read!

A Spider You Can Like

Spiders!  Most people have a strong reaction to spiders—either you love them, or hate them.  I like spiders and just let them do their own thing—I don’t bother you, you don’t bother me.  And they do get rid of those pesky flies and mosquitoes.  However, regardless of how you feel about spiders, there is at least one spider that everyone can enjoy—that Trickster Spider known as Anansi!

Lazy but smart, Anansi just loves to play tricks on his neighbors, especially when it involves getting food without having to work for it!  Some of my favorite picture book stories about Anansi are written by the nationally known story teller, Eric A. Kimmel, and are good choices for a fun, laugh-out-loud read for kids and adults.
