Library's Board Game Collection Now Available at the Dr. James Carlson Library


Do you love board games? You can now browse and check out board games for the whole family at two of our library locations – the Main Library and now the Dr. James Carlson Library branch. You Fargo Public Library card allows you to check out your favorite classic games or try new ones like "Catan" and "Ticket to Ride." The board games collection includes a wide variety of games, both modern and popular classics, for all ages and interest levels. Games can be borrowed for 3 weeks with up to 2 renewals, provided there are no holds on the game. A Fargo Public Library card in good standing is required to check out the board games. Library patrons can place holds on the games via the library’s catalog and the games can be sent to the selected branch library for pick-up. For information about the Board Game Collection at the Fargo Public Library, contact the Jason DeShaw, library collection manager, at 701.241.1498.
