THELMA dominates Team Trivia 2014

 

One team was double trouble for opponents, winning both nights of the 14th annual Fond du Lac Literacy Services Team Trivia at Whispering Springs Golf Club.

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

Kids are a big part of what Money Smart Week is all about.

Team Trivia raffle tickets on sale

What’s a new way to help literacy in our community? Team Trivia raffle tickets, of course. Tickets are on sale starting February 23 at the Fond du Lac Public Library, Saavy Boutique, Dynamic Chiropractic and Gallery & Frame Shop.

Tickets are $5 each or three for $10 and offer a chance to win:

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.

Sign up for Team Trivia 2014

Grab a friend who’s into sports. Another history buff. And maybe a science nerd. Voila: you have the perfect Team Trivia roster. Or not. You’d probably do just as well by corralling a few friends for the 14th annual Team Trivia. The quizmasters are notorious for their off-the-wall questions, stumping college professors and algebra drop-outs alike.

E-book download classes start Jan 2

Many people with new e-readers might not know they can use their Fond du Lac Public Library account to borrow e-books from the library. The library has several resources available to help people learn how to receive this free service.
