FDLPL

Fond du Lac Public Library

Chillax, teens, on Dec 8

School. Finals. Big papers due. Concerts to give. Presents to buy. Teens are under a lot of stress as the school semester and the holidays both close in on their already hectic schedules.

Time to Chillax. Teens in grades six to 12 are invited to do just that at 1 p.m. Sunday, December 8, at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

2 great holiday parties for kids

The Children's Dept. is planning two great holiday parties in December:

New backpack book bags

Forget the stockings: The Fond du Lac Public Library’s new backpack-style book bags will hold a lot more of Santa’s loot, and they’re just $2. The backpacks are sold at the Main Library downtown and at FDLPL Express, near Festival Foods. The library’s popular red totes also are available for sale at both locations for $2.

Send holiday photos for display

Uncle Fred doing the Macarena? Cousin Stella dressed as an elf? A Christmas hearth decorated just right? Everyone has favorite holiday photos that bring back great memories. Now you can share them in the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Up On the Rooftop, Click, Click, Click photo display.

Volunteer to hand out free books

Fond du Lac Public Library will be a distribution center for World Book Night, April 23, 2014, the annual global effort “spreading the love of reading, person to person.”

Friends donate for book-cover technology

Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library, represented by board member Barbara Lukas, center, donated funds to purchase a new machine that covers library books more quickly and economically. Colleen Sweeney of the library’s Technical Services Dept. demonstrates the machine for Lukas and library Director Jon Mark Bolthouse. The clear, custom-fit covers are available to the public for $3 each. The nonprofit Friends organization promotes and encourages the use of library services by fundraising, supporting special events such as Fond du Lac Reads and providing programs for the community.

Got a question? Book a Librarian

Ever wish you had someone at your elbow to teach you stuff? Like how to use that new e-reader. Maybe digging into your family tree. Or just getting more comfortable with the internet. You can, now, with the new Book a Librarian program at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

Bag-a-Tree Craft on Nov. 10

Families with kids of all ages are invited to drop in at the Fond du Lac Public Library between 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday, November 10, for Bag-a-Tree Craft.

Using a brown paper bag and colored paper for leaves, kids will make a pretty autumn decoration for the table or just anywhere. Free; no registration required.

 

'A Dog's Life' all month in the gallery

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.
