The HOMEBOUND SERVICE brings Borough public library service to your door. It is free of charge for people whose access to the library is restricted. Call 459-1031 or email us at bookmobile@fnsblibrary.us for more details, including eligibility guidelines for this service.

LIBRARY-BY-MAIL is the newest Outreach service for Borough residents. It is geared to people who live more than 25 miles from an FNSB public library, but could also serve those whose schedule makes it difficult get to a FNSB library or Bookmobile stop. This one-year pilot program is funded through June 2009 by a combination of Borough special project funds and grant funds from the Alaska State Library. For more details and eligibility guidelines, call 459-1063 or email mail.library@fnsblibrary.us

The REGIONAL CENTER is a library-by-mail service for people who don’t live in a public library service area. It delivers all types of library materials via mail to people living in the bush, north of the panhandle. Call 459-1037 or check out our Web page at www.bushbooks.us to learn more about this state-funded service.

The NORTH POLE BRANCH LIBRARY is a full-service public library at the edge of downtown North Pole. It is open Tuesday through Saturday. Its shelves are crammed with about 35,000 books and other library material to borrow. The building is wireless enabled and there are five internet workstations for public use, as well as a photocopier and a typewriter. The branch has a very active (and very popular) children’s program. Click here for library hours and here for a schedule of storytimes and other library programs.
