What's Going On?

Summer Learning 2021: 05/21/2021


It is summer time, which means fun in the sun! It also means that the Minot Public Library will once again be hosting our Summer Learning Program. This year’s theme is “Tails & Tales.”

Why is summer reading so important? MPL hosts Summer Learning programs for many reasons, but primarily because it matters. It matters because children and teens who don’t read during the summer lose 2-3 months’ worth of reading and math skills over the summer months. Kids who lose knowledge over the summer will have a much harder time getting “caught back up” in school and by the time they are, summer may be just around the corner again.  Summer Learning matters because a trip down the “Summer Slide” is no fun for anyone, the kid, the teachers, the parents, or our whole community.

MPL Tool Library: 05/14/2021

The library offers a tool lending service to its patrons who are at least 18 years of age and have had a library card for a minimum of 90 days. Landscaping, gardening, and home repair tools are available to check out for 7 days, with the possibility of one renewal if no other reservations have been made.

To view the tools visit the online catalog or go to the adult services front desk and ask for the print catalog. Patrons can reserve tools to be held for them at the library by going online, stopping by, or calling the Minot Public Library at 852-1045.
