Early Literacy

March events for kids

A sleepover, movie, race cars, airplanes and more: There are so many free events for kids in March at the Fond du Lac Public Library. All programs are free. Children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult:

Children’s Room short-term closure

The project to install new carpeting at the downtown Fond du Lac Public Library will force the closure of the Children’s Room for several days starting Monday, February 19. It is expected to reopen by Sunday, February 25.

Celebrate Diverse Books

"Imagine a world in which all children can see themselves in the pages of a book."

 I'm borrowing a hopeful statement from a non-profit group called We Need Diverse Books. This group works hard to encourage change within our publishing world to support more books with diverse characters and written by diverse authors.

How Audiobooks Promote Literacy

Did you know that 85% of what children learn is learned by listening? Audiobooks are an often under-appreciated resource that can support  readers of all levels. Although nothing can replace the delight and importance of spending quality time snuggling and reading aloud with your child, bringing audiobooks into the mix of reading experiences has many benefits.

Storytime Updates

Storytime will break for the holidays after this week and come back the week of January 15th. Watch for more information about new programs coming soon. 

Here's a rundown of the fun things happening for younger children before the end of the year. 

Santa, gingerbread & more for kids in Dec

As everyone knows, Santa and Mrs. Claus love to read, so nobody’s surprised that the duo’s making a stop at the Fond du Lac Public Library. Their visit is just one of the great events for kids at the library in December. All programs are free. Only one requires registration. For all, children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult:

Holiday HQ: Chapter 52 Bookstore

Chapter 52 Bookstore, located at Sheboygan and Marr streets next to the Fond du Lac Public Library, is rolling out the bargain carpet for holiday shoppers.

Letters to Santa due Dec 6

When it comes to Christmas wishes, kids know it’s smart to put them in writing. Kids who drop off their letters to Santa at the Children’s Room at the downtown Fond du Lac Public Library by 3 p.m. Wednesday, December 6, will get a personalized reply by Santa mailed to their homes before Christmas.
