Each summer, the Fairbanks North Star Borough Public Libraries sponsor a summer reading program for local children. This year’s program, “A Universe of Stories” for children, was a great success.

Local businesses provided prizes to reward the Noel Wien Library’s enthusiastic readers. Thanks to these generous businesses and organizations: Fairbanks Library Foundation, FNSB Parks and Recreation, Fly Trampoline Park Fairbanks, Great Harvest Bread Company, Spirit of Alaska Federal Credit Union and Toy Quest.

The following volunteers presented informative and entertaining programs at the Noel Wien Library, and we would like to thank them for generously sharing their time and talents: North Pole 4-H Ptarmigans, Fairbanks Children’s Museum, Fairbanks Fire Department, Miss World Eskimo-Indian Olympics candidates, North Star Ballet, Orion’s Belt School of Self-Defense, PAWS Search and Rescue, Serevende Marimbas and the University of Alaska Museum of the North.

Many thanks to all who helped to make the Noel Wien Library’s summer reading program a success.
