Starting a Conversation, Building a Community

The Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo communities are renowned for their shared community spirit, and it is this collaboration and cooperation that sparked an initiative and partnership by F-M Area public libraries.

We enthusiastically encourage all members of our communities to join together in reading the same book, The Giver, by Lois Lowry, and participating in as many events and discussions as possible during the month of October 2012.
