Featured July Events: 

 

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.
