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.
Every year the library encourages the whole community to participate in summer reading programs. Along with helping children hold onto critical reading skills through their break from school, the programs reinforce the importance of lifelong learning for all ages. The programs – for young kids, teens and adults – all encouraged reading with events and rewards.
If you’re a person who finds a room of smiling young faces undaunting and who loves to tell a good story, the Fond du Lac Public Library hopes you will consider applying to be a Storytime Presenter.
Over the years, the Storytime program has grown in popularity. Children are invited to come (with a grown-up) for 30-minute sessions of stories and play that instill a love of reading and a love of books. The library would like to expand the program, and needs help doing so.
Fondue Fest takes place in downtown Fond du Lac on Saturday, September 10, and the library will play a big part.
