The Campbell Library moved to the Nash Park warming house on the north side of East Grand Forks after the flood. Their temporary location is much smaller than the old library. The library received many donations of books after the flood.

The new Campbell Library will be built on Fourth St. NW in downtown East Grand Forks, across from Sherlock Park. Construction should begin this spring. The library is selling a book about the flood, A Small Town's War, to raise money for furnishing the new library. Click here to order the book.
