Shopping for readers this holiday season? The BookCellar at the Fond du Lac Public Library – the city’s only used book store – sells used books, movies, music and magazines for all ages at deep discounts. Most hardcover books are $1, paperbacks and kids’ books are 50 cents.
In December, two special sales offer even-better deals:
The annual Holiday Wine Tasting, organized by Cujak's Wine Market, will be held 5-7 pm Saturday, November 9, at Fox Valley Savings Bank. The event again will benefit the Fond du Lac Public Library’s 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten literacy program.
This year, the annual Fond du Lac Reads program celebrated the memoir, Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero, by Michael Hingson. The subject matter has inspired the November exhibit, A Dog’s Life, in the library’s Langdon Divers Gallery.
Forget about waking up at 3 a.m. to freeze in line at the mega-mart. Shop smarter this holiday season by attending Black Friday Boot Camp at 6 p.m. Wednesday, November 20, at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
