Fond du Lac Public Library cardholders have access to free e-books through the library’s website. The main library will hold two classes in January to help e-reader users learn the system and provide information about other e-book resources.

It's the season for giving. Jonathan, 6, and Arianna, 9, stopped by the Fond du Lac Public Library Children’s Desk on December 13 to give Children's Coordinator Julia Cartwright each a five-dollar bill. The kids were following a family tradition handed down by their father, Mike Korb, of donating what they received on St. Nicholas Day.
Just in time to avert the mini-crisis on your holiday shopping list: What to get that helpful neighbor/adorable niece/plucky cat sitter? The Fond du Lac Public Library’s BookCellar now is selling $5 gift certificates.
I like to read books with a Wisconsin connection, and The Queen is a Christian thriller in the Patrick Bowers series that is set in northern Wisconsin. All of the books in the series are named for chess pieces starting with the first book The Pawn. This is a great book to read for those who like suspense and espionage.
It’s a hidden gem in the basement of the Fond du Lac Public Library. The BookCellar is the city’s only used book store, and it helps support library programming. Best of all, customers can buy great hardcover books for just $1 and kids’ books and paperbacks for just 50 cents.
The BookCellar is run primarily by volunteers, and the library is looking for additional help to keep the store open every Saturday and Monday. BookCellar volunteers help customers find books, shelve new items, sort donations and organize special displays.
