1KB4K: 1,000 BOOKS BEFORE KINDERGARTEN
1KB4K is a library initiative that promotes reading 1,000 books to preschoolers before they begin Kindergarten. It’s easy to do, and the child gets a free book, funded by the Friends of Fondulac District Library, every time they read and report 100 books. For additional information or to register, visit the Youth Services Department.

Anytime Activities
Even when there’s not a program scheduled, there’s always something fun to do at the library! Stop by the desk in the Youth Services Department to learn more about the library’s current Anytime Activity, a craft, game, or project kids can do whenever they visit the library.

Toys & Games
Numerous toys and games are available for your child to play with in the library’s Youth Services Department. The library offers a wide selection of board and card games, as well as a train table, Lego table, puzzles, and a puppet theater. Stop by and enjoy a delightful and entertaining morning or afternoon at the library!
