Do you know any heroes? Heroes and stories are the theme for the Fargo Public Library’s upcoming Summer Reading Program, and exciting events are planned for all ages – kids, teens and adults. This year’s program features all sorts of heroes – from super heroes and their sidekicks to animal heroes, military heroes and community heroes in ways that will appeal to readers of all ages. The free program begins Monday, June 1, and runs through August 8. Readers of all ages are invited to participate by reading, attending events and earning prizes.
The children’s summer reading program theme is “Every Hero Has a Story”. Weekly storytimes, hero-themed events, movies, and activities for all kids up to 12 years of age, are planned at all three Fargo Public Library sites. A schedule of events, kids’ book logs and activity sheets are available at all three library locations and online at www.fargolibrary.org/childrens.
The teen program for the summer is titled “Unmask!”, and all area teens, ages 11 to 18, are eligible to participate. Special themed events for teens are planned each week. Book logs are available at each library location and a list of teen events is available at www.fargolibrary.org/teens.
Adults are also invited to participate in the library’s summer reading incentive program. Titled “Escape the Ordinary”, the adult program is designed to encourage grown-ups to read books, attend programs and explore all of the resources that the Fargo Public Library has to offer. Area adults can read and listen to books, and attend programs for a chance to enter prize drawings. Reading logs are available at all three library locations so participants can keep track of their reading and listening choices this summer.
To participate in the library’s reading incentive programs, pick up an official book log at any Fargo Public Library location beginning June 1; only children need to register to participate.
Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Visit the library’s website at www.fargolibrary.org or the online calendar of events to find activities for all ages. A complete schedule of summer reading program events is available at all library locations and at www.fargolibrary.org.
The Fargo Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is supported in part by the Friends of the Fargo Public Library.
