The children’s Summer Reading Program theme this year is ‘On your mark, get set… READ!’. Sign up week is June 20th – 24th. The program will run for five weeks beginning June 27th – July 29th with a final party.


A gentleman contacted me in March of this year regarding sending used children’s books to him in Taiwan. He is originally from Illinois and has a business near the elementary school of 200 students. He has volunteered to help reinforce the kids’ basic language skills. Picture books for 1st - 3rd grade level are best. We sent him 5 books and he greatly appreciated it. If anyone is interested, please contact me here at the Milo Library and I can give you his name, e-mail address and shipping information.


On Friday, June 10, NAMI Maine will be presenting Youth Mental Health First Aid training at the Milo Library. The class is from 9 AM – 6 PM. If interested, please contact Donna Brown at 248-7935 or donna @namimaine.org


Kathy’s pick is ‘Go Green’. A book could have a green cover or the word green in the title. Come and check out the selected variety.
