The mission of the Fairbanks Library Foundation is to support all Fairbanks North Star Borough public libraries, to enhance their operations, to encourage and support expansion of library buildings, facilities and equipment, and to create, manage, and build an investment fund to assist in these endeavors. We support the Noel Wien Library, North Pole Branch Library, and Bookmobile.
How Pick.Click.Give. makes a difference
While tax dollars allow the Borough Libraries to buy materials and keep the buildings open, it is often only through private donations that programs and services can be offered to meet the community's changing needs. In recent years the Fairbanks Library Foundation has raised $100,000 to help with the successful completion of the new North Pole Branch Library, has funded annual reading programs for children and adults, has funded staff development activities, and has purchased equipment and furnishings, including cell phone booths, cyber-bar furniture for the teen area, upholstered benches in the Berry Room, and covered expenses of installing at Noel Wien and North Pole Branch a large art collection generously donated by the Gianni family. Currently we are seeking funding to provide equipment for a digital mobile classroom with at least 12 laptops to teach small groups how to use digital tools to find information, for job seeking, to do word processing, for genealogical research, and much more. Your donations through Pick, Click, Give will help meet these continuing needs and similar new ones.
