Archeology Lab Tours will take place Saturday, March 25

What happens to artifacts after they are found? Kids in grades 4 to 6 can learn more about the fascinating field of archeology during a tour of NDSU’s Archeology Lab with John Creese, an anthropological archaeologist and associate professor of anthropology. Tours will take place Saturday, March 25, at 9:30 a.m., 12:30, 2, and 3:30 p.m. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Register online at www.fargolibrary.org. Families are asked to minimize the number of adults attending to provide as many children as possible an opportunity to participate. Registrants will receive directions and additional information the day before the tours. For further details, contact Children’s Services at 701.241.1495.

The Archeology Lab Tour events are part of this year’s Red River Valley Kids Read project, a partnership between the public libraries in Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, Grand Forks, and Wahpeton, which runs through March 31. This year’s project features the book “Summer Ruins” by South Dakota author Deb Watley. As part of the reading project, kids ages 12 and younger are invited to participate in a reading challenge by logging into the Fargo Public Library Beanstack app and completing activities to earn digital badges related to the book and events.

Support for the Red River Valley Kids Read project is provided by Friends of the Fargo Public Library, Cass Clay Chapter of the Awesome Foundation, Friends of the Moorhead Library, Bonanzaville Cass County Historical Society, North Dakota State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead and Richland County Historical Society.

Fargo Public Library events are free and open to the public; adults must accompany children ages nine and younger. For more information about the library, its services, and a list of upcoming events, call 701.241.1492 or visit www.fargolibrary.org.
