FPL Geek Night

Here at the Fraser Library we are looking to start a new group of programs referred to as FPL Geek Night, and we are looking for your suggestions. Feel free to contact our Reference Librarian Matt  at coppim@libcoop.net with any suggestions.

 

FPL Geek Night will kick off with our Magic the Gathering event on July 11, and will continue each Wednesday with a new theme. We plan on not only having events for teens, but also having fun activities for the adults.

 

 

Be sure to check our calendar for dates and times or call at
