2019 Summer Reading Program

This summer, visit any of the three Fargo Public Library locations (Main Library, Dr. James Carlson Library, or Northport Library) and participate in our exciting Summer Reading Program for kids, teens and adults. The fun begins June 3 and continues through August 10. All ages are invited to read and discover a universe of stories at the library all summer long.

A Universe of Stories for Kids

A universe of stories is the theme for the 2019 Summer Reading Program for kids at the Fargo Public Library, and exciting events are planned for youngsters of all ages. Starting June 3, and continuing through August 10, kids from birth through 12 years of age are invited to participate in the Summer Reading Program. Earn prizes and a free book as you track your reading, and be sure to take part in some of the many engaging events and activities we have planned each week.

A schedule of events will be available soon, or visit our kids’ page for weekly updates. Check out the above video for a fun look at all we have going on this summer for kids, families, teens and adults. Register for the Summer Reading Program by visiting any one of the Fargo Public Library locations beginning Monday, June 3. Or, starting June 3, you can print your reading log – we have both a log for Readers and an activity log for Pre-readers – from our website, but don’t forget to visit an FPL location near you to pick up your registration packet! Keep track of the time you spend reading and join us for programs featuring many ways for kids to discover a universe of stories all summer, and all year, long.

A Universe of Stories for Teens

The Fargo Public Library’s Teen Summer Reading Program will give teens, ages 11 to 18, the opportunity to take part in a variety of interesting programs and activities this summer designed just for them. In addition, teens can turn in reading logs for a chance to win prizes at the end of summer! Visit our teen page or the library's online events calendar for a list of related events and activities.

A Universe of Stories for Adults

The Fargo Public Library celebrates summertime with its annual adult summer reading program from June 3 through August 10. This year, the theme is "A universe of Stories" and we want residents to participate in the annual summer program at the library by reading and taking part in inventive and engaging programs at the library all summer long.

Grab your library card and head to the nearest Fargo Public Library location. Use your time on vacation, at the lake, or in your own backyard to read, learn and discover. Events for adults are listed on our adult page and on the online events calendar. A printable bookmark log for adults is available starting June 3.
