As we know, public libraries are known for books and research materials, but they also offer many programs that promote lifelong learning, connect patrons to technology, and advance our knowledge.

#LibraryGivingDay is a one-day fundraising event with the goal of encouraging people who depend on and enjoy public libraries to donate to their individual library system. And in turn, that support will go toward the incredible programs, services and materials provided by local libraries all over the country.

The day to celebrate #LibraryGivingDay is April 10, 2019! Follow us on social media for how you can be part of #librarygivingday and support our library!

Local Artists on Display!
We are excited to announce that we will be featuring local artists at the Grand Forks Public on our Mezzanine Art Gallery! The gallery will be installed over the last week of March & our first artists will be on display beginning in April.

A big THANK YOU to the Grand Forks Public Friends for their donation of the gallery display cases and artwork hanging system. We appreciate their help in bringing this gallery to life!
