Fond du Lac Public Library broke a record in April when it circulated more than 70,000 items! This jump - about 10 percent - follows a several-month-long climb for circulation. In fact, library usage has been on a record pace for more than 12 months. Thanks to all the library fans out there - we heart our patrons.
I enjoy reading books that have a Wisconsin connection. By that I mean the book has a Wisconsin setting or the author is from Wisconsin. I just finished reading a new book, Wingshooters by Nina Revoyr. The author grew up in Japan, Wisconsin, and California, and the book is set in central Wisconsin. There are autobiographical elements in Wingshooters. Both the author and the main character have a Japanese mother and a white American father and have English Springer Spaniel dogs.
