Calling all history buffs and curious minds! A new historical exhibit is traversing the American Heartland this summer. The BUS-eum is rolling into town and visiting Grand Forks Public from 12-5 p.m. Friday, July 30. Join us from 12-1 p.m. for a special presentation about the 1918 Flu Epidemic.
Celebrate the completion of the Summer Reading Program with activities for the whole family! Cool off with a yummy treat from Brain Freeze (for the first 650 guests). Join us for fun and games on the library's front lawn. Free and open to all.
It’s 2 p.m. on a rainy Saturday in 2019. Dr. Brandon Wild settles into a cozy cubicle in the Grand Forks Public Library for the next four hours, pops in some earbuds playing his favorite rock music, and gets to work writing his next book. Learn more about Brandon’s writing process at the library.
Be sure to check out our Mezzanine Gallery currently featuring artwork by Bee Hutchens. Art has been a constant in Bee’s life, and she describes her work as “a journal entry and exercise in keeping me balanced.”
We now offer two gaming stations for teens! Each station is equipped with an Xbox One and a PS4. In order to use the gaming stations, teens need to present their library card and check out a controller from the front desk.
In celebration of Pokémon Go's 5th anniversary, join us for Pokémon Walking Club Saturday, July 31, at 2:30 p.m. in University Park. Water and a packaged snack will be provided.
We had a blast parading through Thompson Days earlier this month! Watch for our next appearance at the Potato Bowl Parade in September. Did you know Grand Forks Public serves all of Grand Forks County?
