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.

Adults included in summer reading fun, too

The days are longer. The nights are sweeter. What’s better than losing oneself in a great book to slow the summer down? The Fond du Lac Public Library is offering an easy, no hassle summer reading program that lets adults in on the fun.
