Children's and Teen Services
We serve children and teens from birth to age 19. We also serve parents, caregivers and agencies that work with youth and families. Visit us in the library in the Children's Room to find great books, free fun and helping hands. In our department, you will find books, music, movies and more to promote creativity and learning.
Sarah Newton is the Youth Services Coordinator and heads the children's and teen department. She moved from Virginia to Fond du Lac in 2012 and yes, she still loves the snow in Wisconsin. Sarah has been in libraries for almost ten years and continually looks for ways to keep the library in the forefront of people's minds. She adores any book that will make her laugh, such as That is Not a Good Idea by Mo Willems and the Regarding the . . . series by Kate Klise and thinks that one of the best parts of libraries is still sharing great books. Stop in and see her or email her at [email protected]!
