Early Literacy

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.

The Fond du Lac Public Library hopes kids will go to the Children’s Room on Sunday, March 2, to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day. 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.

Teddy Bear Sleepover March 14-15

Teddy is invited. So is bunny. Or kitty. And don’t forget dragon. They’re all invited to the Teddy Bear Sleepover at the Fond du Lac Public Library. Kids ages 3 to 8 are invited to drop off their best stuffed friend any time on Friday, March 14, and come back at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 15, to be reunited with their friends and enjoy breakfast and stories.

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.
