The library has a summer of interesting and engaging events planned as part of the annual Summer Reading Program. Weekly special events are planned for all ages – kids, teens and adults. This year’s program features a variety of events and activities focused on building a better community for everyone – in ways that will appeal to readers of all ages. The free program begins Monday, June 5, and runs through Saturday, Aug. 5. All ages are invited to participate by reading, attending events and earning prizes.
The children’s summer reading program theme is “Build a Better World.” Weekly storytimes, themed events, movies, and activities for kids up to 12 years of age are planned at all three library sites. A schedule of events for kids, kids’ reading logs and activity sheets are available at all three library locations and online.
The teen program is also titled "Build a Better Community" and all area teens, ages 11 to 18, are eligible to participate. Teens are invited to come to the library to read and to take part in special events offered each week during the program. Book logs are available at each library location and a list of teen events is available online.
Adults are also invited to participate in the library’s summer reading incentive program. Also titled “Build a Better Community”, the adult program is designed to encourage grown-ups to explore a variety of ways to keep their minds and bodies healthy 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 from now through August 5; only children need to register to participate.
Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Visit the library’s website or 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 online.
The Fargo Public Library’s Summer Reading Program is supported in part by the Friends of the Fargo Public Library.
