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.

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. 

Gobble-A-Break!

Join in the fun this Thanksgiving week.

Through the whole week in the Children's Room:

  • Turkey Treasure Hunt - find all the turkeys hidden around the room and earn a prize
  • Turkey Activities - matching games, coloring sheets, and more
  • Guessing Jar - guess how many candies are in a jar for a chance to win a big prize bag

Out and About in the County

We love visiting! The past month or so, youth services staff have had a blast getting out in the community. We go to school events, day care groups, community events, and more! If you'd like the library to be a part of your event, please reach out to us! If you want to bring your group to visit us, you can set up a visit by emailing us at [email protected] or calling 920-322-3940 for the youth services department. 

Read it again, please!

 

Read It Again Please!

Does your child have a favorite book they want read over and over again? Or worse, wants YOU to read over and over again? You've probably memorized every word and by now you could throw the book out the window!

Reading with Babies

Recently, the Children's department was asked to compile a list of great books for babies for a local service group. Not toddlers or preschoolers, but great fit books for babies This got us thinking about all of the great reasons why we read to babies long before they are able to read with us or understand the plot of a book.

Reading to your baby:

Take the 1000 Books Challenge!

Have you heard about our 1000 books Before Kindergarten program? If you have a child that is not yet in kindergarten, this is a program for you! 


Here's how it works:

Play is hard work!

The Importance of Playing With Your Child 

We love to play here at the library. We offer playtime after toddler storytime and have various toys and activities in the children's room for you and your children to play with while you visit.
