Marilyn Hagerty: Local Kids Pick Up Books – Grand Forks Herald

They are reading.

Aaron Stefanich, head of the children’s department at the Grand Forks Public Library, says “Wings of Fire” about dragons that can’t stay on the shelves. Then there’s another “Bad Guys” series that’s very popular, he says.

An older series, “Who Would Win,” won’t stay on the shelves for long, Stefanich says. “Younger children like to read it.”

Then there’s the ‘Bad Guy’ series of really popular books. According to the librarian, they will be released in a movie in April. He said “Who Would Win” is an older series that young people love to read.

“When they travel, they first find their way to the library and stock up,” he said. And Stefanich says that there are no super busy days during a snow storm, but that there are people who know how to find their way to the library.

Make a new appointment, eat cookies

You’re planning basketball games this winter. Then you shift the matches that are not played on the college circuit. That was the discussion when the UND boosters recently met at the UND Alumni Center.

Meanwhile, January 2022 will pass as prime time for cookie baking. The following Ginger Snaps recipe has been around for decades.

1 ½ cups shortening, 2 cups sugar, 2 eggs, ½ cup molasses, 4 cups flour, 4 teaspoons baking soda, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ginger, 2 teaspoons cloves.

Cream together shortening and sugar. Add eggs and molasses and beat well. Sift the dry ingredients together — and blend into a smooth dough. Roll into a walnut-sized ball. Dip in granulated sugar – place on greased baking sheet, sugar side up.

Baking. Expect four to five dozen.
