It’s a good guess that the hundreds who attended the annual Cujak’s Wine Market Holiday Wine Tasting at Fox Valley Savings Bank in November didn’t know their evening out was benefitting such a good cause. On Monday, Sara Cujak and Jim Ziebarth, vice president for FVSB Financial Services, presented a check for $3,500 to the Fond du Lac Public Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten program.
The Fond du Lac Public Library has been leading the charge for Money Smart Week since 2007. Money Smart Week Wisconsin is an initiative of the Governor's Council on Financial Literacy, in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago.
Kids love to color and they love frozen custard, so this is a win-win. Kids ages 11 and younger can pick up a special coloring sheet at the Fond du Lac Public Library Children’s Desk throughout April. All they have to do is draw a picture about their favorite book, turn the picture in to the library and they get a coupon for a free scoop of custard. The coupon is redeemable at any neighborhood Culvers.
Boy, you really dug into reading this summer. This has been one of the busiest summers ever at the Fond du Lac Public Library. With magicians, wild animals and tons of reading – more than 2 million minutes were logged by kids, teens and adults - we hope you had as much fun as we did.
As summer winds down and school gets started, we’re heading into a great fall season.

Today's Lego Club was a success. There were 24 creative kids in attendance. The topic of discussion for the day's build was "walls" and how to build them using staggering and overlapping techniques. We also discussed the Great Wall of China. Photos from today's build are available on our Facebook page @ FDLPL Kids. Or check out the display case near the entrance to see some of the structure on display.
