The program is recommended for teens and adults.

Kindle users can now borrow library ebooks

The Fond du Lac Public Library now has Kindle e-books for borrowing.

FDL Reads celebrates Coach Lombardi

He was a perfectionist who expected as much out of his players and his family as he expected from himself. He was a complicated man from simple origins, the son of an Italian butcher who grew up in Brooklyn. He was a good player, hardnosed and hard working, but at 5’8,” too small for big-time football, so he turned to coaching. His perfectionism became an obsession with winning.

Money Smart Week classes

Money Smart Week Wisconsin will be held October 8-15, and Money Smart U at the Fond du Lac Public Library is celebrating by offering two personal finance classes for adults and one for families.

Halloween fun for kids
