FDLPL

Fond du Lac Public Library

Half off at BookCellar

Books make great gifts, and with a giant half-off sale at the BookCellar, gift-giving is a snap. The BookCellar is the library’s used books-and-more store located in the lower level.

On Saturday, November 12, Monday, November 14 and Saturday, November 19, books, movies, CDs and more are all half off (with exception of collectors’ materials and the newest best sellers). Hardcover books and CDs will be 50 cents; kids’ books and paperbacks just 25 cents.

FDLPL Express to open Nov 17

The Fond du Lac Public Library’s first branch expansion is scheduled to open November 17. A grand opening for the 1,700-square-foot FDLPL Express, at The Shops at Johnson Crossing, is planned for Saturday, December 10.

The branch will feature a “to-go” collection of materials, emphasizing best sellers and new releases, a sizable children’s corner and materials to help with busy lives, featuring cooking, crafting, home repair and more. Patrons will be able to access the computer catalog, place holds and pick up materials.

Catalog to change Nov 3, some services to be disrupted

To save more than $60,000 a year and to provide better service, the Fond du Lac Public Library is becoming an independent, standalone library. The library has been a member of the Winnefox Library Automated System, but this year the library board determined that the $103,000 annual Winnefox price tag was not providing good value to Fond du Lac city taxpayers.

If you dare: 'Visiting the Beyond' Oct 24

Paranormal explorer Curt Strutz, cast member of the cable show, “Paranormal Generation,” will present an exciting program rich in history, storytelling and personal experiences to set the mood for Halloween. “Visiting the Beyond” will be offered at 6:30 p.m. Monday, October 24, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The program is recommended for teens and adults.

Kindle users can now borrow library ebooks

The Fond du Lac Public Library now has Kindle e-books for borrowing. For many months, the library has had e-books compatible with other formats, but it wasn't until September 21, 2011 that Amazon entered into a partnership with OverDrive Media, the program used by libraries across the United States.

FDL Reads celebrates Coach Lombardi

He was a perfectionist who expected as much out of his players and his family as he expected from himself. He was a complicated man from simple origins, the son of an Italian butcher who grew up in Brooklyn. He was a good player, hardnosed and hard working, but at 5’8,” too small for big-time football, so he turned to coaching. His perfectionism became an obsession with winning.

Halloween fun for kids

The Fond du Lac Public Library is the place this October for little monsters.

Express opening delayed

Construction delays at FDLPL Express, the library's new branch, are forcing the postponement of grand opening festivities planned for October 22.

FDLPL Express will be located at the Shops at Johnson Crossing, on east Johnson Street. It will feature a "to-go" collection of materials, that emphasizes best sellers and new releases, with a sizable children's corner and materials chosen to help people in their daily lives, such as cookbooks and materials on home repair, family and parenting, crafting and more.
