The Fond du Lac Public Library is holding a special Holiday Craft Storytime at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, December 13.
All ages are welcome for the family-oriented program that will feature stories about the holidays and wintertime, plus a special make-and-take glittery Christmas craft. Children ages 5 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
The Fond du Lac Public Library has set up Giving Trees at the downtown library and at FDLPL Express on east Johnson Street to collect donations of hats, scarves, mittens and gloves. Donated items will be given to the Fond du Lac Salvation Army before Christmas for distribution to local children.
