Weather Events Of The 1930s Presentation April 18 At The Fargo Library

The Fargo Public Library welcomes Daryl Ritchison, interim director of the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network, to present “Voices of the 1930s: When the Soil Blew Away” on Tuesday, April 18, at 7 p.m. at the Main Library. Ritchison will take a look back at the weather events of the 1930s through the voices of those who lived through the worst drought in the past 140 years. He will examine how land use changes made the drought worse and how we may not be well prepared for the next dry spell. All ages are welcome. Contact Lori West at 701-476-5977 for further details.

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Adults must accompany children 10 years and younger. For more information regarding the Fargo Public Library and a list of upcoming events, call the Information Desk at 701-241-1492 or visit
