Gobble! Gobble!

It's getting closer to the end of the month and one of the biggest holidays of the year and the start of the holiday shopping season.  As many people start thinking about holiday meals featuring turkey and dressing and all the fixings, the staff at the Fairbanks Branch Library have gathered several picture storybooks featuring turkeys as the main characters.  Please browse the display, "Gobble! Gobble!" and you may find some books to check out and share before and during the holiday.  Happy Turkey Day and Happy Reading! 

What Does the Fox Say?

Remembering Tom Clancy

In order to honor Tom Clancy, one of the best-read authors of Fairbanks Branch Library readers, the library staff has created a special display of books written by Mr. Clancy.  One of the masters of the modern-day thriller, he applied his knowledge of the military to many of his stories and created memorable characters who have been portrayed in several films by well-known actors.  Tom Clancy died Tuesday, October 1, in Baltimore, Maryland at the age of 66.  If you have not read one of his books, please give yourself a treat and pick one from our display to read. 

Fall Trees & Leaves

To celebrate the ending of the summer season and the advent of Fall weather, the front windows at the Fairbanks Branch Library are decorated with some trees and fall-colored leaves.  Please take a look on your next visit to the library and experience the library's Fall atmosphere.  It's a good reminder that cooler weather is an extra good time to curl up with some good books and read about your favorite characters and types of stories.  Happy Reading!

Celebrating Grandparents

Just like we celebrate Moms and Dads, we celebrate Grandmothers and Grandfathers.  Many of the picture books in the library's children's collection are stories about grandparents, and we have a new display of some of those titles for you to browse on your next visit to the library.  Please take a look and check some out to share with family and friends.  As always, ask us about interlibrary loaning books that you can't find here at the Fairbanks Branch Library.  Happy Reading!
