History of the Fond du Lac Public Library

The Fond du Lac Public Library has been a true community library from the start. Its roots can be traced as far back as the 1850 when it was first discussed by the Young Men’s Association. The City Council officially organized the library in November 1876.  Members of the Fond du Lac Women’s Club obtained a gift from Andrew Carnegie to open the first permanent library building in 1904. In 1966, the League of Women voters and a cadre of individuals from the community were credited for making the “new” library possible.
