Fargo Public Library’s Free Summer Reading Program Begins Monday, June 5

Looking for ways to help build a better world and make your community a better place this summer? The Fargo Public Library has you covered with a summer of interesting and engaging events planned for all ages – kids, teens and adults – as part of the annual Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is “Build a Better World” and features a variety of special events, movies and activities focused on building and construction – in ways that will appeal to readers of all ages. The free program begins Monday, June 5, and runs through August 5. People of all ages are invited to participate by reading, attending events and earning prizes.

The children’s summer reading program features weekly storytimes, themed events, and movies for kids up to 12 years of age at all three library sites. Three LEGO Block Kick Off Parties for kids of all ages are set for Monday, June 5, at all three locations:

  • Monday, June 5 – Main Library at 10 a.m.
  • Monday, June 5 – Dr. James Carlson at 3 p.m.
  • Monday, June 5 – Northport Library from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

A complete schedule of kids’ events, kids’ reading logs and activity sheets are available at all three library locations and online at http://fargond.gov/city-government/departments/library.

The teen program is for all area teens, ages 11 to 18. Teens are invited to come to the library to read and to take part in special events offered each week. Book logs are available at each library location and a list of teen events is available at www.fargolibrary.org.

Adults are also invited to participate in the library’s summer reading incentive program. The adult program is designed to encourage grown-ups to explore a variety of ways to make their community and world better by reading books, attending programs and exploring 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 5; 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 on the library’s website.
