This week, Build Minot sculptures are at MAFB Library, Minot City Hall, the Minot Public Library and Jim Hill Middle School. Have you seen one yet? What do YOU think will help improve Minot?!?

Take some time to write down ideas to improve our community when you see these blocks around town. Fill out a block or e-mail your comments to build.minot@gmail. com.

HyattHouse.jpgBlocks and permanent markers are set up at different, rotating spots across town and community members can write on the block how they want to “build” a better Minot. This fun campaign for the Minot Public Library, and the people of Minot, is ultimately rooted in the gathering of data and aspirations for our community.

Currently, the Minot Public Library is looking for local businesses and organizations who are willing to host one of these sculptures for up to two weeks to give their customers and guests the opportunity to share their ideas for building a better community. With a variety of different locations, we will be able to reach diverse ages and community sects.

The Library is also looking for people to help with the Build Minot wrap-up event which is tentatively scheduled for June. This event will include a large community fair showcasing the different cultures and histories that make our community unique. In order to make this community fair a reality, we will need many different groups and vendors, as well as financial support. Following the wrap-up event, the Minot Public Library staff will tabulate the data gathered and distribute it to all the partners and supporters of Build Minot.

The goal of this campaign is to go beyond building structures, so that we can answer the question of HOW to build a thriving community of neighborhoods, businesses, schools, art, recreation and more. Help us answer this question and help us to “Build Minot.” Contact Library staff at (701) 852-1045 or at build.minot@gmail.com to get started!
