People starting out using computers can get a helping hand at Introduction to Computers, a series of four classes at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
The hands-on classes will be held from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. September 17, 18, 24 and 25. Each class will tackle a computer skill: how to use a mouse, how to find things on the internet, basic terminology and commands (such as cut/copy/paste) and an introduction to email. Participants will be working on library computers. Laptop owners can bring their devices; make sure to note that when signing up.

Who doesn’t love Saturdays? They’re especially great for kids this fall at the Fond du Lac Public Library. Super Saturdays – a free program for school-aged kids – will introduce concepts such as chemistry and physics in a way that feels a lot more like play than school.
Fond du Lac Public Library will launch Family Storytimes starting September 18. The program for parents and kids ages 12 months to 5 years will be repeated four times a week through October 18, with a new program each week.
A seminar on the many ways that people can use everyday items to adapt their homes and maintain their independence – Dish Towel or Door Opener? – will be offered at 6 p.m. Tuesday, September 18, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The program is free and open to the public; no registration required.
Retirement can be a great time of life, but understanding the intricacies of the paperwork can cause headaches. The library is offering a free class, When I’m 65, at 1 p.m. Tuesday, September 11.
Presented by Julie Hilbert, senior benefit specialist from the Fond du Lac County Dept. of Senior Services, the class will provide information on insurance, Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part D and Social Security.
Handmade is better. Nothing beats the love, meaning and care that come with a gift made by hand. A home decorated with hand-crafted items is unique. Besides, making stuff is a lot of fun.
The Fond du Public Library kick-starts the fun this fall with Crafternoons, a new program for adults and teens. From 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. every third Saturday, library staff and local crafters will host a different how-to, make-and-take fun project.
