Free custard for kids

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.

Celebration of the Book April 12

The word “book” used to mean one thing: a bunch of printed pages bound together with a sturdy cover. Now, it can be something you listen to or – more frequently – a digital file accessed on an electronic device. Regardless of how it’s delivered, the book is the thing at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

Kids get Money Smart, too

Dr. Seuss Day March 2

“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go,” said the wise Cat in the Hat.

Kids ages 3-12 can stop in from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. to hear stories, try their hands at a make-and-take craft, cookie decorating, do a bit of coloring and hope to win one of the door prizes. The event is free. No registration required.

Wine event benefits 1,000 Books program

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.
