Friends of the Casselton Public Library

Excitement is in the air as we begin organizing a group of volunteer to form the new Friends of the Casselton Public Library Group.  By-Laws have been adopted, the Memorandum of Understanding has been signed, and the officers have been appointed.  The group will be starting a membership campaign as well as developing a programming plan.  We still need three more individuals to be on the Executive Team so if you are interested in this groundbreaking group whose mission is: to raise money and public awareness in the community to support the services and programs of the library, fell free to call or stop by.  We would love to have you join.


Come visit us soon!

Shamrock Search

The library has been invaded with smiling shamrocks.  Stop into the library before St. Patrick’s Day and see how many you can find.  Everyone will have the opportunity to place their guess in a basket and on Thursday, March 17th a winner will be drawn from those with the correct answer.  The prize waits at the end of the rainbow.

π –Pi Day– π

March is here, and it’s time to celebrate! St. Patrick’s Day, the first day of spring and March Madness may all grab our attention but at the library we are talking about a different holiday. Get out your calculators—it’s time to celebrate Pi Day! What’s that, you may ask? Think back to geometry class… Pi is a mathematical constant that is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is approximately equal to 3.14159 and usually is shortened to 3.14, but it could go on forever. It has been represented by the Greek letter “π” since the mid-1700s, although it is usually spelled out as “pi.” We invite you to join us at the Casselton Public library on 3.14 at 1.59pm as we watch the movie The Life of Pi and enjoy a slice of pie as we marvel at the wonders of math.
