Don't Procrastinate!

Tax formsWe have volunteers from AARP here to help people (regardless of age) complete their federal income tax forms on Mondays and Tuesdays from 1 pm – 5 pm, and Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm.  Here’s a friendly warning:  The longer you put it off, the bigger the crowd will be.

Mighty Machines

Trucks, tractors, bulldozers!  These are just a few of the mighty machines you can read about in a new display at the Fairbanks Branch Library.  If you like to read about machines that help keep us rolling and building, please browse the "Mighty Machines" display on your next visit to the library.  If you don't find the right book for you, please ask and we will interlibrary loan what you need.  Happy Reading!

Just a drill

If you were driving past the library earlier and saw us all standing outside, don't be alarmed! We just had a fire drill this afternoon.

Jimmie activated the fire alarm by spraying smoke at one of the smoke detectors.

We need volunteers!

Patron Count Week is coming up and we need volunteers to count the number of people who come to our library from Monday, March 14 through Saturday, March 19. Each shift is one hour long but you are welcome to sign up for more than one hour. You may also sign up for multiple days! Volunteers must be between the ages of 14 and 104.

Spread the word to anyone who might be interested in lending us a hand. Kids, this is a great way to get volunteer hours for your club at school or to beef up your scholarship application. Or if you're just bored at home, flip through a magazine or book while helping us tally up the library folk. Grab a friend and help us count!
