Library castoffs become art

Artist Mel Kolstad is interested in ephemera – stuff like stickers and tickets that aren’t meant to last a long time – because they’re often beautiful pieces of history that people overlook.

Exhibit inspired by 'Rent'

Fond du Lac Visual Arts will present Rent: Addressing the Issues, an art exhibit inspired by the musical of the same name during the month of June at the Fond du Lac Public Library gallery.

Summer reading programs end Aug 18

Reading has inspired countless real-life heroes and heroines to follow their dreams. Sometimes a story sparks an idea, and an invention is born. Sometimes a vivid character gives a reader courage to try something new. Henri Rousseau never left France; he turned to books to inspire his famous jungle paintings. Reading is the stuff of dreams.

The Fond du Lac Public Library’s summer reading programs – Dream Big: Read – will encourage readers of every age to indulge their deepest wishes through the magic of books and reading.

Kids invited to Dream Big: Read this summer

Teens + dreams + prizes = great summer reading program

If you don’t dream big dreams when you’re a teen, then when? Reading stokes the imagination, propelling into new worlds, new ideas and new possibilities. The Fond du Lac Public Library’s summer reading program for teens (kids going into seventh through 12th grades) will encourage young readers to follow and discover new dreams through reading.

Adults included in summer reading fun, too

The days are longer. The nights are sweeter. What’s better than losing oneself in a great book to slow the summer down? The Fond du Lac Public Library is offering an easy, no hassle summer reading program that lets adults in on the fun.
