TNT: Tacos 'N Technology: 09/21/2016

TNT.jpgCome to the Minot Public Library the first Tuesday of every month beginning on October 4th for an evening of technology with a side of tacos! Library staff will demonstrate how to use some of our latest technology toys such as Snap Circuits, Raspberry Pi and Sphero while attendees enjoy tacos in a bag. After the demonstration everyone will get a chance to try the technology themselves and can check the tech toys out with their library card. This event will begin at 6:30 pm on October 4th, November 1st and December 6th and will be held in the lower level of the Library. These programs are free to attend for any and all ages and are especially geared toward families. Registration is not necessary, but is helpful as food will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Call 852-1045 to register or for more information.


Communiversity - "Command & Control" Discussion: 09/20/2016

On Wednesday, October 5th at 6:30PM at the Minot Public Library, visiting Professor of History from the University of Mary, Joseph Stuart, will lead a discussion on Eric Schlosser's Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Command & Control. Using an incident with a missile at a base in Damascus, Arkansas in 1980 along with other weapon mishaps as a backdrop, Command & Control focuses on the topic of the management of America's nuclear arsenal and how all the care and planning that goes into controlling these weapons of mass destruction only provides, as the book's subtitle suggests, an "illusion of safety."

Refreshments will be served starting at 630pm!

If you have any questions about the event, please feel free to call 701-852-1045 or email brendan.chella@minotnd.org.  Hope to see you there!
