The Center for Exploration was proud to participate in the grand re-opening of the Children’s Department of the Grand Forks Public Library on Saturday. To add to the celebration, we were happy to offer the Grand Forks Children’s Museum’s Imagination Blocks to add some extra fun for the day.
I’ve always admired the slogan for the Grand Forks Public Library… ‘a playground for curious minds’. It mirrors the vision we have for the Grand Forks Children’s Museum. Libraries play an important role in our communities – libraries support literacy, open minds to new ideas and adventures, provide a common gathering place and promote lifelong learning. This is what we also envision for the Grand Forks Children’s Museum.
As a lifelong Grand Forks resident, I visit the library frequently and my children participate in the summer reading programs. Reading keeps our minds active, curious and allows our imagination to explore new worlds.
Our Grand Forks Public Library is a local treasure, just as the Grand Forks Children’s Museum will be.
