June is National Audio Book Month, and the Fond du Lac Public Library is celebrating by giving out free ear buds to kids and free car-adapter cords to adults when they check out Playaway books. Playaways are MP3-like devices loaded with just one book that can be paused, forwarded, reversed – run just like any digital player.
The members of Fond du Lac Visual Arts have collaborated in an exhibit at the Fond du Lac Public Library Langdon Divers Gallery in June. The range of work is vast: jewelry, ceramics, watercolor, collage, oils … it’s a multimedia exhibit that showcases the diversity of the group.
Nationally certified auto instructor Cory Clark, a teacher at Fond du Lac High School, will offer a series of three Basic Car Care classes at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The classes are on three consecutive Wednesdays in June, at 6:30 p.m.:
June 12: How to Change Your Oil
June 19: Tire Maintenance
June 26: Fluids – What to Change & When
Clark will talk about supplies needed, cost, common mistakes and procedures. There will be plenty of time for questions.
The classes are free. Registration is not required.
In many parts of the world, being poor isn’t just a hardship, it can be life threatening. In some countries, the most-endangered – orphans, single women and single mothers – are targeted for human trafficking. Desperation and false claims of a better life draw them into danger.
