Make Your Summer "Count" @ Your Library

Just because school is out for the summer and you have no math homework, that does not mean that you can't have some fun with numbers and how to use them.  There are many fun books using math and your library here at Fairbanks Branch has a special display of math books to amuse and challenge you as you enjoy the summer vacation.  On your next visit to the library, please take a look at the "Go Figure!" display and find a book you like.  If you don't find what you want, please ask us and we can interlibrary loan the book you need.

Yay!! Summer Vacation!!

Road tripIt’s that time again. Do you know where you want to go? Do you know what you want to see and do once you get there? As usual, the library can be a great help. There are over 300 travel books just at the Fairbanks branch, and the other branches have hundreds more that can be sent to Fairbanks for your convenience. They are from such famous travel publishers as Fodor’s, Frommer’s, Rick Steves, Mobil, and Moon Handbooks. There are tons about the U.S. and Europe, some on Canada, Asia, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and a few on Australia, the Middle East, and Africa. So, no matter where you want to go on vacation (or have to go on business), library books can help you figure out what to see, what to do, where to stay, where to eat, and what to buy while you’re there.
