Like libraries, games connect people. Games help us learn and be social… and they’re just plain fun! In celebration of International Games Week, we will host a gaming celebration Saturday, November 13, featuring:
  • Board game demonstrations with Broken Sentry Games
  • One-Shot RPG (Role-Playing Game) - Starting at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. All levels of experience welcome.
  • Miniature painting activity - Free miniatures are available for the first 30 people, while supplies last. Paint and brushes will be provided.
Join us for STEM@ My Library: Geosciences on Sunday, November 14, from 2-3 p.m. Experts in the field of geosciences will provide hands-on activities for kids to enjoy and learn.
Let's Get Crafty!

Join us for in-person and virtual holiday crafts throughout November. Create gifts for your friends and family, or treat yourself!

Tween Tuesdays

Know an Artist?

The Mezzanine Gallery at Grand Forks Public is a place for local artists to exhibit their artwork and creative passions for the community of Grand Forks and Grand Forks County. We're always looking to grow our list of artists.
