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.
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.
