Baseball in the Park

One of the perks of the library's location being inside the William "Bill" Bane Park is that there often are Little League Baseball games being played at various times throughout the year.  Being a baseball fan, it is fun to see some of the games and listen to the spectators cheering for the players.  The book collection at the Fairbanks Branch Library includes a large section of materials about sports, including baseball, football, basketball, soccer, and others.  No matter what sport(s) you may like, the library has books you can use.  So come by the library and let us help you find the books you need.

Rainy Weather and Frogs

Some of the staff here at Fairbanks like to walk in the park after the close of our business day and we enjoy the walking path around the pond.  With the recent rains, the pond is quite full and has overflowed in some areas and created some fairly muddy spots in the path.  I like seeing the ducks as we walk and we have noticed some turtles and frogs.  Well, that got me to thinking about picuture books with frog stories which are always a favorite topic for story times.  So, we created a new display in the children's area of books about frogs and you are encouraged to visit the library and select some frog stories to share.  Thank you--and READIT!
