Learn geocaching Oct 8

Did you know that there’s a secret treasure hunt going on right now all around you? It’s happening in your parks, in your downtown, in your shopping centers and maybe even in your yard. It’s called geocaching, and it’s a growing phenomenon across the country.

Summer 2011 was a barn-burner

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.

Networking for job seekers Sept 15

Finding a job can be tough, but the surest way to find opportunities is through networking. Job Smart U at the Fond du Lac Public Library is offering “Networking for Job Seekers” at 6 p.m. Thursday, September 15.

A job seeker’s most-powerful resource is their network of friends, family members, colleagues and acquaintances. But, to many, networking seems intimidating. It doesn’t have to be. Presenter Don Herrmann will focus on how to develop and maintain a job-seeking network.

Storytime Presenters needed

If you’re a person who finds a room of smiling young faces undaunting and who loves to tell a good story, the Fond du Lac Public Library hopes you will consider applying to be a Storytime Presenter.

Over the years, the Storytime program has grown in popularity. Children are invited to come (with a grown-up) for 30-minute sessions of stories and play that instill a love of reading and a love of books. The library would like to expand the program, and needs help doing so.
