Library Events in January

Posted January 16, 2013 in Community Blogs

The Fort Dodge Public Library is sponsoring a Local Author Event on Saturday, January 19 at 2 p.m. in the Public Library Meeting Room.  Brandon Summers is a local author who has self-published four novels and is working on his fifth. He will be talking about his writing and his books.

This will be a great program for anyone who enjoys science fiction, is a writer themselves or is interested in finding out more about the process of publishing.

You can find Brandon’s books on and are available for purchase in both paperback and Kindle editions at

Preschool Story Time registration begins on Thursday, January 17.  Children ages 3- 6 who have not attended Kindergarten are eligible for Preschool Storytime.  Storytime begins January 23rd and 24th.  Storytimes are held: Wednesdays 10:00 – 10:30 am; Thursdays 10:00 – 10:30 am and 2:00 – 2:30 pm.

Parents must register their child for the day and time they will be bringing their child.  For many children, this will be their first classroom experience without a parent. Children listen to stories, learn finger plays and take the first early steps toward literacy during Storytime.  There is no fee for these programs.  The programs will run weekly for 6 weeks.

Parents may call or stop by the Children’s Department to register their child.  The Children’s phone number is 573-8167 ext 242.
