Friends of the Fargo Public Library
The Friends of the Fargo Public Library is an advocacy group that promotes the library through fundraising, sponsoring events and organizing used book sales. The Friends also host an informal monthly book discussion group, Book Talk, at the Downtown Fargo Public Library.
More than 250 individuals and families were charter members of the Friends organization. The group officially formed in March 1995.
To join the Friends, pick up a membership application (requires Adobe Reader) at any branch of the library. For more information about the Friends, e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 364-BOOK (364-2665). The Friends can also be contacted by mail at: P.O. Box 1365, Fargo ND 58107.
