Rainy Weather and Frogs

Some of the staff here at Fairbanks like to walk in the park after the close of our business day and we enjoy the walking path around the pond.  With the recent rains, the pond is quite full and has overflowed in some areas and created some fairly muddy spots in the path.  I like seeing the ducks as we walk and we have noticed some turtles and frogs.  Well, that got me to thinking about picuture books with frog stories which are always a favorite topic for story times.  So, we created a new display in the children's area of books about frogs and you are encouraged to visit the library and select some frog stories to share.  Thank you--and READIT!

Meow! Meow!

It's that time of the year when the Great Pumpkin rises from the pumpkin patch and visits the Fairbanks Branch Library to share stories and refreshments.  Don't forget our Great Pumpkin Story Time on Monday, October 26, at 7:00 PM.  And, of course, it also is the time of the year when cats bring their own special qualities to the festivities.  Short cats, long cats, thin cats, fat cats, cats in all their colorations!  To celebrate cats everywhere, the library created a display of picture books featuring our feline friends and we invite you to visit the library and browse the display and find a book for a purrrrfect read!
