Ask a kid what’s cool, and you’ll get as many answers as there are kids. Ask them to paint or draw or sculpt something they love, and you’ll be delighted by the creativity.
The Fond du Lac Public Library is asking for kids to submit artwork inspired by the things they’re into for Dig Into Art, a show in the Langdon Divers Gallery through the month of July. The exhibit will complement the library’s summer reading program, Dig Into Reading, which runs June 10 through August 3.
Sara Cujak hosted the Cujak’s Wine Market Holiday Wine Tasting at the Fond du Lac Public Library in November. Amid the wine sampling, hors d’oeuvres and chocolate tasting, serious business was under way: early literacy.
1. Do I have to be in the library to download e-books to my e-reader?
No. Most items can be downloaded wirelessly to your device from Overdrive anywhere there's a wireless connection.
2. Can I do it all from my device?
That depends on what device you own. Currently the e-readers that do not require a computer are: Kindle Fire and Fire HD, iPad, Smart phones, Nook HD and Nook Color and Android tablets. You must have your own computer to download to other e-readers.
Are you smart? Do you have smart friends? Do you like to have a good time while helping a great cause? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, the 13th Annual Team Trivia is the event for you.
Teams of four can sign up now for the March 5 and March 7 event at Whispering Springs Golf Club. Team members pay $25 for adults and $15 for teens (ages 13-18). The event includes a cash bar and a $12.50 per person Pulled Pork Sandwich dinner. Dinner is served at 5:30 p.m., accompanied by live music from Daryl Rogers, and the quizzing begins at 6:30 p.m.
Storytimes at the Fond du Lac Public Library are an immensely popular drop-in program for parents and young children. Kids think the sessions – full of stories, rhymes and songs – are a lot of fun. Parents know they reinforce and emphasize important early literacy skills.
