Grand Forks Public will host a traveling exhibition designed to teach kids and their families about money, thanks to a competitive national grant from the American Library Association (ALA) and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. Thinking Money for Kids is a new multimedia experience for children ages 7 to 11, as well as their parents, caregivers, and educators. The interactive exhibit uses games, activities and a fun storyline to help children understand what money is, its function in society, money choices, and money values, such as fairness, responsibility, and charitableness. The exhibit will be on display at Grand Forks Public, along with a series of related special events, from May 23 to June 30, 2022.
Would you like to preserve family history, such as vintage photos, recipe cards from years ago, or love letters from WWII? Patrons are invited to bring in 1-10 family documents to be scanned and digitized on our archival scanner. You will then receive a digital copy, either on a thumb drive or an M-DISC (archival quality storage disc). The library does not keep copies of your items, and you will receive the only digital copy. Sign up for an appointment by calling 701-772-8116. We will accommodate walk-ins as time allows.
Join us for Yoga on the Lawn, presented by the Grand Forks Public Friends. Katie Kouba, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT), will teach a gentle yoga class on the front lawn of the library. Class is open to all skill levels, for ages 12 and up. Please wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing, and bring a yoga mat or large towel.
Note: In the event of bad weather, this event will be canceled.
