New Year, new budget control Jan 23

It’s fun to splurge during the holidays. It’s not as much fun, though, to face the consequences when the bills come due in January.

With a new approach, the holidays – and every other time of year – can be easier and less stressful. Sandy Syms of Consumer Credit Counseling Service will present “New Year, New Budget” at 10 a.m. and repeated at 6 p.m. Tuesday, January 23, at the Fond du Lac Public Library. The programs are free; no registration required.

Syms will share tips and advice on how to create a spending plan that avoids the end-of-the-month scramble.

Flavors of the World starts with vanilla, saffron Jan 16

Take your taste buds on a world tour with the Fond du Lac Public Library’s new monthly kitchen demonstration series, Flavors of the World.

Every third Tuesday of the month, local and regional foodies and experts will focus on a spice, flavor or herb (or two), tell their stories and demonstrate and share recipes in the Idea Studio.

Holiday Movies at the Library

The calendar says it's time to start getting into the holiday spirit and the Fond du Lac Public Library can help. Our selection offers tons of holiday movies and CDs for the whole family. We have everything from new favorites, such as Paw Patrol: Pups Save Christmas, to old classics like Frosty the Snowman. Stop into the Children's Department to pick up your favorites or, hopefully, discover a new favorite this holiday season.
