Milo Library News - August 2013

By Rochelle Williams

This year’s Summer Reading Program, Dig Into Reading, was a big success.

Thirty-five children were signed up which includes the Milo Day Care.  They participated consistently throughout the five weeks and almost all of them came to the Final Party.  Everyone had a good time.

A total of 669 books were read by the end of the program.  We had terrific support through volunteers and the Town of Milo.  Thank you everyone for your participation and help.

Our special book display this month is, of course, summer fiction and the theme is ‘beaches and lighthouses’.  Also, we have been given a nice selection of fiction and non-fiction books to add to our Newly Donated book shelf.  Come and check them out.
