Download e-books classes for Nook, Kindle, iPad & Android

Did you get a new e-reader for Christmas? Not interested in shelling out money for every new book? There’s an app for that.

Many people with new e-readers might not know they can use their Fond du Lac Public Library account to borrow free e-books from the library.

The library’s Reference Desk, located on the second floor of the Main Library, is e-book central. Patrons can visit the desk any time to get help with downloading books to their devices.

New round of 'Intro to Computers' classes

People just starting out using computers can get a helping hand at Introduction to Computers, a series of four classes at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

The hands-on classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. January 7, 8, 14 and 15. Each class will tackle a computer skill: how to use a mouse, how to find things on the internet, basic terminology and commands (such as cut/copy/paste) and an introduction to email. Participants will be working on library computers. Laptop owners can bring their devices; make sure to note that when signing up.

FDL Visual Arts membership show in December

The members of Fond du Lac Visual Arts have collaborated in an annual show at the Fond du Lac Public Library gallery through December. The range of work is vast: jewelry, ceramics, watercolor, collage, oils … it’s a multimedia exhibit that showcases the diversity of the group.

The Fond du Lac Public Library’s Lego Club for kids has been so popular, organizers have added a second meeting this month – 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, November 27.
