The Friends of the Fargo Public Library, a nonprofit organization that raises money to fund library projects, operates a bookstore on the first floor of the downtown Fargo library.
The 259-square-foot bookstore, adjacent to the main stairway leading to the second floor, has scheduled a grand opening on Saturday.
“It’s a work in progress, but we’re happy it’s there,” Mary Kerbaugh, president of the Friends of the Fargo Public Library, said of the bookstore.
The new 54,000-square-foot downtown library opened this spring. It has twice as much space as the old library it replaced.
Incorporating a small bookstore into the new library was part of the planning process for the building, said Tim Dirks, library director.
