Do you know a good joke? Share it with the entire community during the month of April.

All month long, the Fond du Lac Public Library’s youth services department invites you to submit your favorite joke. Stop by the Children’s Room at FDLPL to share your joke with us. Then, be sure to invite your friends and family to call our Dial-A-Story line at 920-322-1959, where we’ll share your joke with the entire community. 

Just need a good laugh? Feel free to call Dial-A-Story anytime to hear these jokes. Youth services staff also update Dial-A-Story by reading a new picture book and a new chapter from a longer story.
