WEST FARGO — A large federal grant has allowed nine West Fargo public school libraries to stay open on certain dates throughout the summer.

Part of the $4.28 million Striving Readers grant, which is being dispersed to West Fargo Public Schools by the U.S. Department of education over the next three years, is being used to pay for staffing for the summer hours.

The district says keeping the libraries open will help kids who would otherwise go without books have access year-round.

Some libraries are typically open for summer school students, but the grant will let more libraries stay open for longer for all students in the district.
