Minot Public Library
What do you GEEK?: 08/22/2014
Residents of Minot may soon add a new verb to their vocabulary—‘geek.’
The Minot Public Library and Ward County Public Library are participating in Geek the Library, a community‐based public awareness campaign. Geek the Library introduces ‘geek’ as a verb, and encourages the public to talk about what they ‘geek’—whether it’s engineering, superheroes or art. The public awareness campaign illustrates the fact that everyone is passionate about something—everyone ‘geeks’ something—and that the library supports them all.

Help your children hold on to their reading skills this summer by introducing them to new books with TumbleBooks.
