MOPS (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) Thurs. Sept. 8


MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) will be hosting it’s first meeting of the new school year this Thursday, 9:00am-11:00am at Faith Evangelical Free Church. In MOPS every mom is welcomed, accepted and inspired to reach her potential and recognize her influence within her family and her world. MOPS believes that better moms really do make a better world.
During our first meeting, we’re going to talk about how we can love our community, and we’re offering you a couple practical ways to build it up. In addition to talking with new and old friends, we’ll be making baby blankets to donate to the Grand Forks Women’s Pregnancy Center.

If you have any additional donations you’d like to make to the Women’s Pregnancy Center, please bring them. These might include new items like baby bath wash, or other similar items, clothing items your child just never wore, or other items.

One of our Mentor Moms is preparing an inspiring devotional, and as always, there will be a delicious breakfast, childcare for children birth to age 5 and good conversation!

In 2011-2012, we’ll be meeting on the second Thursday of each month for fellowship at Faith Evangelical Free Church. On the fourth Thursday, we’ll have a planned play date, and we have some FUN planned! 

Please see the other information provided on our webpage http://grandforksmops.blogspot.com/ or find us on Facebook at ‘Grand Forks, ND MOPS’ and feel free to contact us with questions!

See you mothers and kids tomorrow morning!

East Grand Forks Campbell Library


The good thing about living right along the state border is that we have two of everything, including libraries! The East Grand Forks Campbell Library is a beautiful library that offers many activities for children and adults. Now that school is back in session in Minnesota, Storytime has resumed at the EGF library. There are three storytimes a week: Tuesday and Wednesday mornings at 10:00am and Thursday evenings at 7:00pm. After storytelling time there is a craft. The whole event runs about 30-40 minutes.

Library Card Information:

Library cards are good for one year.

For East Grand Forks residents that live in town, and members of the Grand Forks Air Force Base with an active military card, library cards are free. To get your free card, you must have proof of residency with you to obtain your card. This could be anything from a license to mail sent to your residence in East Grand Forks.

For Patrons outside of city limits, here are the costs:

Child: $10
