Teens + dreams + prizes = great summer reading program

If you don’t dream big dreams when you’re a teen, then when? Reading stokes the imagination, propelling into new worlds, new ideas and new possibilities. The Fond du Lac Public Library’s summer reading program for teens (kids going into seventh through 12th grades) will encourage young readers to follow and discover new dreams through reading.

Kids' drawings earn custard

Kids love to color and they love frozen custard, so this is a win-win. Kids ages 11 and younger can pick up a special coloring sheet at the Fond du Lac Public Library Children’s Desk throughout April. All they have to do is draw a picture about their favorite book, turn the picture in to the library and they get a coupon for a free scoop of custard. The coupon is redeemable at any neighborhood Culvers.

The free custard promotion is taking place in recognition of National Library Week, April 8-14. The library is holding a number of activities during the week and month.
