Volunteers needed in Opportunity Center

The Fond du Lac Public Library’s Opportunity Center is a free computer lab resource where under- and unemployed people can get help looking for work, writing resumes and researching employers. The center is staffed by local volunteers who work one-on-one with users, many of whom lack computer skills. This help is essential.

Sign up for Team Trivia 2014

Grab a friend who’s into sports. Another history buff. And maybe a science nerd. Voila: you have the perfect Team Trivia roster. Or not. You’d probably do just as well by corralling a few friends for the 14th annual Team Trivia. The quizmasters are notorious for their off-the-wall questions, stumping college professors and algebra drop-outs alike.

E-book download classes start Jan 2

Many people with new e-readers might not know they can use their Fond du Lac Public Library account to borrow e-books from the library. The library has several resources available to help people learn how to receive this free service.

Tweentastic good time

Sometimes the in-betweens get lost in the shuffle. Tweens are too old for the little-kid stuff and too young to hang out with high schoolers. So the Fond du Lac Public Library is starting a program just for them: Tweentastic, the last Thursday of the month from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Kids ages 10 to 13 are invited to drop in to have fun for a hands-on, crafty time.

Teens Chillax on Jan 25

By the time January 25 rolls around, the holidays will be long gone and teens will be in the thick of finals and homework and chores. The usual boring stuff.

Time to Chillax. Teens in grades six to 12 are invited to do just that at 1 p.m. Saturday, January 25, at the Fond du Lac Public Library.

Storytimes resume June 17

The popular Storytimes program for parents and young children at the Fond du Lac Public Library will resume on Tuesday, June 17. Kids think the sessions – full of stories, rhymes and songs – are a lot of fun. Parents know they reinforce and emphasize important early literacy skills.

All programs are free; no registration required:

The story of what happens when Sally and Conrad are visited by a talking cat will be the feature at the Sunday Matinee at 1 p.m. January 19 at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
