At the time of writing this on December 28th, the Fremont Area District Library is currently open for Curbside Service and in-person appointments, with printing and copying available as well through Curbside. Information about making appointments to browse and checkout, along with using Curbside Service, can be found at www.fremontlibrary.net.
Beginning January 4th, adults will have the opportunity to join the Cabin Fever Relief Challenge! This is a winter reading challenge and you can either sign up during your in-person appointment at the library, or call 231-928-0256 to pick up your reading challenge card via Curbside. When you complete all 8 reading categories on your card, turn it in for a prize mug! The challenge will run through March 20th and you can sign up any time before then.
The Children’s Winter Reading Club continues this month, and it runs through January 31st. To sign up, all you need to do is call our Children's Department at 231-928-0249 to ask for a reading log for your child, and arrange to pick it up curbside or during an in-person appointment. Children can cross off or color in a snowflake on their log each time they read (10 snowflakes total), and when they're done, they can claim a prize! Just be sure to turn in your logs by Jan. 31st. Finishers will be entered into a grand prize drawing!
Grab-n-Go Crafts continue to be available weekly and can be picked up curbside. Watch the Fremont Area District Library Facebook page to see the new crafts each week. Storytime with Miss Roxanne continues on Facebook as well. New storytime videos post each Wednesday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m., and you can find previous ones by searching #fadlstorytime.
Reader’s advisory and fact checking/research help is still available to you as well. You can call our Reference Desk at 231-928-0256 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. If you’d like suggestions on children’s books call 231-928-0249 or email Roxanne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
