Kids invited to make the most of holiday break at Fargo library events
Free events offered for kids of all ages
FARGO — The holiday break just started for many area kids, so the Fargo Public Library wants to make sure children know free events have been planned for them to make the most of the time away from classes and homework.
Area teens are invited to a virtual "Escape the Library" event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 28. Kids in grades 6-12 should register for a session at http://www.fargolibrary.org/ or by calling the teen librarian at 701-476-5978.
That night, the downtown Main Library will host "Christmas Vacations Drive-In Movie Night" at 6 p.m. Participants can build a cardboard sleigh and park it while watching Dr. Seuss's class "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". The event is geared toward children ages 3 to 9, and snacks will be served. Registration is required at www.fargolibrary.org.
The annual "LEGO Mania Design Contest" will take place Thursday, Dec. 30, so kids ages 12 and younger are invited to build a creation at home and bring it the downtown library location to be judged from 2 to 3 p.m. Prizes will be awarded and winners announced at 3:45 p.m. in the Children's Room. Rules and registration can be found at www.fargolibrary.org/kids .
Finally, the library is offering a family-friendly "New Year's Party To-Go" packet with supplies needed for an at-home gathering. Package pick-up begins Monday, Dec. 27 and continues while supplies last. Packets are limited to one per family and can be picked up at all three Fargo Public Library locations.
