Self-Checkout is Coming to the Fairbanks North Star Borough Libraries!

Currently, we are installing RFID tags in the library’s collection, in preparation for a self –checkout system. RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification. RFID tags are “smart” bar code labels that can talk to the library’s computer system. The tags can tell our computer system when an item is checked out, and when it is returned. You may have heard that there are concerns about privacy in relation to RFID tags. The only information available on the RFID tag is the item’s barcode number. We will continue to apply tight security with regard to our patron database.

100 MUST-READS for KIDS 9-14

is the Noel Wien Library book display for March. Last summer, more than 2,000 National Public Radio listeners sent in their nominations for the best books for young readers. NPR’s expert panel combined audience favorites with their own choices to come up with a list of 100 must-reads. No matter your age, there are ‘great reads’ on this list. It’s a nice mix of ‘old favorites’ and titles that will be new to almost every one of us. So grab a few to read for the first time or to enjoy revisiting once again. The books (or series) are listed alphabetically by author, so there is no hierarchy here – just an overall elite group of good things to read. All are shelved in the Berry Room unless it’s noted otherwise on the list. Enjoy – and just in time for Spring Break, too!
