Library’s Summer Reading Program Begins June 3

The Fargo PublicLibrary’s popular annual Summer Reading Program for kids, teens and adults begins Monday, June 3 and runs through August 3. Readers of all ages are invited to participate by reading, attending events and earning prizes. All Fargo Public Library Summer Reading Program events are free of charge and open to the public.

This summer the children’s summer reading program theme is “Dig Into Reading”. Weekly craft events, storytimes, movies and performances for kids ages 0 to 12 based on this theme are planned at all three library locations throughout the summer. A schedule of events, kids’ book logs and activity sheets are available at all three library locations and online at

The teen program this summer is titled “Beneath the Surface”, 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

Adults are also invited to participate in the library’s summer reading incentive program. Titled “Dig Into Reading”, the adult program is designed to encourage grown-ups to read books 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. Bookmark 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 (kids and teens) or bookmark log (adults) at any Fargo Public Library location beginning June 3; only children need to register to participate.

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. A complete schedule of summer reading program events is available at all library locations and at
