December 11, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ 701 CoWorking Space
Library resources are now available at the 701 Coworking space in downtown Grand Forks. A library computer with access to almost all library resources is available to any and all using the 701 Coworking Space. This allows access to the library’s vast online resources and various data bases. In addition to the computer the Community Engagement Librarian will be available the second Tuesday of each month from 9am to 12pm to assist individuals in several ways. The Library@701 project was created in an effort to reach younger adults in our community that may not know about the variety of resources available to them. It is part of a larger effort to bring the library outside of its own walls and provide a greater impact for the Grand Forks community.
