Bounce Back to the Fort Dodge Public Library!
Saturday, September 8 marks our return to fall hours at the Library, and we’re celebrating our first Saturday open with a celebration! The Library is sponsoring Market on Center that day and we’ll have the Bouncy Thing out front for the kids from 9 until noon. We also have a special treat inside the Library that day, so come inside, look around, check out some great books and movies and get ready for a great fall!
Tuesday, September 11 we have a great program lined up at 2 p.m. Bill Jamerson, of Escanaba, Michigan is coming to present a multi-media tribute to the Civilian Conservation Corps, a Depression Era work program created by President Roosevelt. He tells stories, sings and reads excerpts from his novel Big Shoulders, and talks about how important the CCC was in the lives of the teenage boys and their families.
