Library Celebrates National Fossil Day Wednesday, Oct. 17

The Fargo Public Library is celebrating National Fossil Day this week with a hands-on session. Jessie Rock, a geologist in the Geosciences Department at North Dakota State University, will present an engaging program about fossils and provide kids of all ages an opportunity to “touch the ancient” at the Main Library on Wednesday, Oct. 17 starting at 6:30 p.m. Kids and adults will have an opportunity to handle real fossils from millions of years ago. Youngsters can dig for fossils and make a “fossil” of their own to take home as part of this engaging event, too. All materials will be provided. Contact Children’s Services at 241-1495 for details.

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Adults must accompany children under 10 years old.
