Summer Reading

The Innocent by David Baldacci

Baldacci introduces a new character in this book and I hope he sticks around. Will Robie is a government "hit man" who takes on America's bad guys, but his moral code kicks in when his latest assignment involves killing a mother and child. He can't do it, and from that point on he becomes my hero. Will then finds himself at the receiving end of the hunt. His own people are after him and he must use every skill he's ever learned in order to stay alive.

Feeling adventurous? Try Book of Your Dreams

Are you a dreamer? A adventurer? Do you like a little mystery in your life? Then challenge yourself by picking up a Book of Your Dreams. Books - fiction and non in every genre - have been hand-picked by staffers Joanne Mengel and Susan Ringer and wrapped in brown paper. They're waiting to be checked out by the first floor staircase.

Kids invited to Dream Big: Read this summer

The children’s summer reading program at the Fond du Lac Public Library this year – Dream Big: Read – will encourage kids to imagine their wildest adventures through the magic of reading. Kids ages birth to 12 can sign up starting June 4 at the Main Library or FDLPL Express, near Festival Foods.

Teens + dreams + prizes = great summer reading program

If you don’t dream big dreams when you’re a teen, then when? Reading stokes the imagination, propelling into new worlds, new ideas and new possibilities. The Fond du Lac Public Library’s summer reading program for teens (kids going into seventh through 12th grades) will encourage young readers to follow and discover new dreams through reading.

Summer 2011 was a barn-burner

Every year the library encourages the whole community to participate in summer reading programs. Along with helping children hold onto critical reading skills through their break from school, the programs reinforce the importance of lifelong learning for all ages. The programs – for young kids, teens and adults – all encouraged reading with events and rewards.

The Fond du Lac Public Library has free events all summer in conjunction with its “Travel the World, Page by Page” themed summer reading programs. Programs coming up are:

Summer Carnival Kickoff a blast!

Saturday's Summer Reading Kickoff Carnival was a smashing success, thanks to Sunshine the Clown, Betty Trent face painting, games, magic and popcorn! We couldn't have pulled it off without help from a great group of volunteers, who did everything from check out customers at the BookCellar Bag Sale to help sign people up for the summer reading programs.
