What We Read in 2013

Every year Fairbanks readers check out thousands of books, but many of those checkouts are the same titles and even the same exact copies being checked out by new readers.  So what were most of us reading this past year?  Let’s look at the Top 5 fiction titles.
 

Resolutions 2014

2013 is almost history and 2014 about to begin.  As the new year is coming I think about the New Year's resolutions I should be considering and setting as goals to accomplish during 2014.  If you are like me, there are various things I would like to change and to accomplish.  If you need help planning and meeting your goals for the new year, the library has various resources to help you, such as books and audio recordings.  On your next visit to Fairbanks Branch, please browse our new display--"Resolutions 2014"--to see just a few of the titles available for you to use.  Have a Happy New Year and Happy Reading for making 2014 one of your best years ever.

Santa's Wonderland

The Pct. 4 Fun4Seniors trip to Santa’s Wonderland in College Station was great!  The Wonderland is open through December 30, in case you want to stretch out your holidays.  Keep your eyes on our events calendar for more Fun4Seniors trips.

Fireside Thrillers

 

 Some of my best time for reading is when I can settle into my chair next to the fireplace and lose myself in a good story that can be termed a "thriller."  If you like to read "thrillers," please take a look at one of the library's newest displays, "Fireside Thrillers" and select some titles to check out and enjoy during the holiday period and at any time of the year.  Happy Reading!
