Popular Picks @ Your Library

One of the most used book displays at the Fairbanks Branch Library is "Popular Picks" which features books that are popular with library customers and members of the library staff.  These recommended titles cover a wide range of genres from mysteries and suspense to romance and realism.  Whenever you visit the library, please be sure to see what titles are on this display and you just might see a title that catches your interest.  If there is a book that you want and we do not have it here at Fairbanks, just let us know and we will interlibrary loan a copy for you, either from within our library system, or from a library in Texas or from either of the other forty-nine states. 

We Found Them for You

Worldwide webLooking for information on the internet using a search engine can be overwhelming. Do you ever wish you had a list of good web sites to go to for this or that? You’re in luck, because HCPL’s web staff has made lists for you. To get to them, click our Websites tab and look in the “Find” box on the left for the categories. The “Ready Reference” category includes links for dictionaries, directories, conversions, and translations, among other things.

We’re a Little Bit Country and a Little Bit Rock & Roll

MusicWhen you think of the library, I bet you don’t think of music CDs. You should, though, because Harris County Public Library has over 9600 titles. [I found out by typing “sound recording music” in the catalog search box on our home page. You can find the music you’re interested in by adding the genre, the artist, or a title to the search terms.] We have all genres, including rock, pop, country, R & B, classical, Latin, gospel, jazz, and others, plus tons of music for kids. Check it out! It’s a great way to test-drive a CD before you decide whether to buy it.

Go Green! @ Your Library

Princesses & Frogs

Would a princess really kiss a frog?  Some stories say Yes, and others would say No.  For some fun reading of stories about princesses and frogs, check one of our latest displays featuring picture books about princesses and also picture books about frogs.  Then you can decide for yourself if it would be worth it to kiss that frog.
