Summer Reading

Robyn Carr Has a New Book Series

Robyn Carr is one of those contemporary romance authors I just never get tired of reading, and her new book The Wanderer is an amazing start to her new Thunder Point series. I loved her long running Virgin River series, and I am happy to report this new book had all the elements I have come to expect from this author - small town charm, quirky characters, wonderful romance, and a little mystery thrown in for good measure. As the story line progressed and I met each character, I found myself identifying them with people I know, or know of, in real life.

Why read this summer? It's rewarding!

In Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, Howard Carter found the tomb of King Tut. Kathleen Kenyon’s excavation on the banks of the Jordan River unearthed Jericho, the world’s oldest city. Peter Brown and Michael Morwood found traces of ancient Hobbit-like people in Indonesia.

Porch Lights by Dorothea Benton Frank

Another great story by one of my favorite authors. As with her other books, reading Porch Lights made me long to visit the South Carolina Lowcountry, specifically Sullivan's Island, the setting for most of her books and where the author was born and raised. The way she describes the grasslands, amazing sunsets, and the gentle ocean breezes make it sound like paradise.

Mondays on the Moon now double the fun

Heavy demand and a generous gift from the Friends of the Fond du Lac Public Library have combined to double the fun on Mondays.

Lego club madness

Today's Lego Club was a success. There were 24 creative kids in attendance. The topic of discussion for the day's build was "walls" and how to build them using staggering and overlapping techniques. We also discussed the Great Wall of China. Photos from today's build are available on our Facebook page @ FDLPL Kids. Or check out the display case near the entrance to see some of the structure on display.
