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 celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and features a variety of space-related and themed events and activities for everyone – in ways that will appeal to readers of all ages. The free program begins Monday, June 3, and runs through August 10. All ages are invited to read and discover at the library all summer long.

The children’s summer reading program theme is “A Universe of Stories.” Weekly storytimes, themed events, movies, and activities for all kids up to 12 years of age are planned at all three library sites. A schedule of events, kids’ book logs and activity sheets are available at all three library locations and online starting June 3.

The teen program is also titled "A Universe of Stories" 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 “A Universe of Stories”, the adult program is designed to encourage grown-ups to 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. 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 3; only children need to register to participate.

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public. Visit the library’s 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.
