The Three Rivers Kiwanis project for last year was to paint the downstairs of the Milo Library.  The painting got started this February after all the windows were installed.  This project is in process and looking very good with a new color scheme.  Aren’t we lucky!  We are also doing some reorganizing to make the space more ‘user friendly’.


A Nook or e-book reader was recently donated to us and can be checked out to use for our download library selections.


Kathy’s pick is ‘Have you ever felt neglected, lonely, less than useful?  These old gems need a visit!  Care to try one?’  This book display features a great variety of older books and authors that needed to be put in the forefront again.


We have many donated puzzles (500 to 1,000 pieces), DVD’s, VHS movies and books on CD’s.  They can be checked out just like a book.


Ongoing Book Sale – There have been many more books added to our books for sale.  Paperbacks are 10 cents and hardbacks are 25 cents each or five for a dollar.  Who can beat that price?  We also have a selection of books for sale by the carton.
