"It's Raining Cats & Dogs"

With the recent rains, the staff here at the Fairbanks Branch Library created a new display of picture books that feature cats and dogs.  For a rainy day and even a day of sunshine, these stories can make you smile and are fun to share with the children in your life.  Please take a look at the "It's Raining Cats & Dogs" display in the children's area of the library and select some books for your reading pleasure.  As always, if there is a title you want, we can get it for you. 

Volunteers Needed

ShelverThe Fairbanks Library had lot of volunteers over the summer. They did a great job, and those with the most volunteer hours received movie tickets from the Friends of the Library. Then school started and they all disappeared. We need volunteers now more than ever. If you can find time in your schedule, please come and help us get these books, movies, etc. back on the shelves where they belong.

Celebrating Library Card Sign Up Month

Because September is Library Card Sign Up Month, we read Beverly Billingsly Borrows a Book by Alexander Stadler during Preschool Storytime. In the story, Beverly signs up for her very own library card and checks out a great book on dinosaurs. I don't want to ruin the story so you'll have to check her book out yourself!
