Build-a-Zine Week at Idea Studio Dec 12-16

It’s Build-a-Zine Week at the Fond du Lac Public Library’s Idea Studio December 12-16. Zines are usually small, handmade magazines that focus on a certain topic.

The Idea Studio’s community zine will explore the theme of making. Stop in any time to create a page: tell a story, write a poem, illustrate an idea – anything goes, as long as it fits in the margins of the preprinted outlines. When the project is done, all the pages will be combined into one zine and displayed in the studio. Materials will be provided. Free. No registration.

FDL history through landmark ornaments Nov 17

It started, of course, with the Lakeside Park Lighthouse, back in 1990. The light-green Christmas ornament created by the Soroptimists of Fond du Lac as a fundraiser proved so popular they decided to do another the following year, the Galloway House. Fast forward 25 more years, and the program – landmark ornaments – is going strong.
