Return to FDL's 'Grand Manner' days Feb 19

Years ago, attorney Terry Gaffney came across souvenir guide books from the late 1890s and early 1900s that promoted Fond du Lac to visitors and conventioneers. Both books included pages of photos of “representative” homes, featuring the abodes of the city’s most-comfortable citizens.

Federal tax instructions available to borrow only

For many years, the Fond du Lac Public Library has been one of the only places in the area where the public can pick up free tax-preparation forms. However, the Internal Revenue Service recently informed the library that it would not provide printed copies of instruction booklets, citing budget cuts. Forms will be available – they likely will start arriving at the library in late January – but not instruction booklets for federal taxes.
