Express opening delayed

Construction delays at FDLPL Express, the library's new branch, are forcing the postponement of grand opening festivities planned for October 22.

FDLPL Express will be located at the Shops at Johnson Crossing, on east Johnson Street. It will feature a "to-go" collection of materials, that emphasizes best sellers and new releases, with a sizable children's corner and materials chosen to help people in their daily lives, such as cookbooks and materials on home repair, family and parenting, crafting and more.

Job interview help Oct 17 & 18

A great resume can get you in the door, but landing the job depends on the interview. Job Smart U is offering free practice job interviews conducted by a veteran human resources specialist at the Fond du Lac Public Library. Sessions will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Monday, October 17, and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18.

Learn geocaching Oct 8

Did you know that there’s a secret treasure hunt going on right now all around you? It’s happening in your parks, in your downtown, in your shopping centers and maybe even in your yard. It’s called geocaching, and it’s a growing phenomenon across the country.

Summer 2011 was a barn-burner

Every year the library encourages the whole community to participate in summer reading programs. Along with helping children hold onto critical reading skills through their break from school, the programs reinforce the importance of lifelong learning for all ages. The programs – for young kids, teens and adults – all encouraged reading with events and rewards.

Networking for job seekers Sept 15

Finding a job can be tough, but the surest way to find opportunities is through networking. Job Smart U at the Fond du Lac Public Library is offering “Networking for Job Seekers” at 6 p.m. Thursday, September 15.

A job seeker’s most-powerful resource is their network of friends, family members, colleagues and acquaintances. But, to many, networking seems intimidating. It doesn’t have to be. Presenter Don Herrmann will focus on how to develop and maintain a job-seeking network.

Storytime Presenters needed

If you’re a person who finds a room of smiling young faces undaunting and who loves to tell a good story, the Fond du Lac Public Library hopes you will consider applying to be a Storytime Presenter.

Over the years, the Storytime program has grown in popularity. Children are invited to come (with a grown-up) for 30-minute sessions of stories and play that instill a love of reading and a love of books. The library would like to expand the program, and needs help doing so.

Fondue Fest fun with the library

Fondue Fest takes place in downtown Fond du Lac on Saturday, September 10, and the library will play a big part.

Outside, near the library's Sheboygan Street entrance, the Children's Dept. will feature Sunshine the Clown, a make-and-take cheese bookmark craft, the dogs from the Paws to Read program, The Amazing Daryl and of course our very own Browser.

Holiday Wine Tasting to benefit literacy program

Some people begin shopping for Christmas in July. Many start sprucing up their homes for holiday parties in August. Cujak’s Wine Market and the Fond du Lac Public Library hope you’ll think about holiday wines this fall.
