Every Thursday this summer, kids in Fond du Lac can ride for free to and from the Fond du Lac Public Library.

In a collaboration between Fond du Lac Transit and the Library, local youth can receive a free ride to and from the Main Library at 32 Sheboygan Street every Thursday. This program will run from June 6 to Aug. 29.

To receive a free ride on a Fond du Lac Transit bus, youth must show their library card when they enter the vehicle.

That means youth can visit the library all summer long, and enjoy free access to library materials such as books, music CDs, DVDs, and more. They also can drop in for fun activities in the Children’s Room during Summer Reading at the Fond du Lac Public Library, such as guessing games, and scavenger hunts. By participating in Summer Reading, they even can win prizes as they read their favorite books.

Riding the bus to the library is also a great way to honor this year's Summer Reading Program theme of "Read, Renew, Repeat." Students can do their part to keep Wisconsin's forests green by using Fond du Lac's public transportation to visit the Fond du Lac Public Library this summer.
