College SAVE Summer Reading Campaign starts June 4

College SAVE Reading Champion

The West Fargo Public Library is partnering with Bank of North Dakota’s College SAVE program to provide one more incentive to participants in its summer reading program – money!

College SAVE is the state’s 529 plan to help residents save for college. Every young reader who signs up for the West Fargo Public Library’s summer reading program will have the opportunity to register for one $529 contribution to a new or existing College SAVE account. At the end of the summer, every reader who completes the program’s parameters will receive a $25 contribution to a College SAVE account and a chance to receive one of 10 $529 contributions to a College SAVE account. The parameters are as follows:

1. Log 20 hours of reading on one of the library's summer reading program logs (available starting June 4)

2. Participate in 2 summer reading program activities or events


Bank of North Dakota and the North Dakota State Library have partnered to offer the College SAVE Reading Champions Campaign statewide. More than 40 libraries with nearly 15,000 readers are expected to participate and help raise awareness that College SAVE accounts grow state and federal tax free when used for qualified higher education expenses. Contributions are also tax deductible from North Dakota state income.
