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.

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.

We had a successful five week summer reading program.  Thirty-nine children signed up and participated.  The number of books read between independent and family readers totaled 751 books.  We had a fun party downstairs in the library on the last Friday of the program with balloons, drawings, drinks and Elaine’s Bakery goodies.  Congratulations to all the children who participated.  The message from us is to keep on reading! We wish to thank the weekly Wednesday afternoon readers (the kids loved it). Also, thank you Maine Community Foundation for the grant to purchase books for the program.

We at the Milo Library have started preparing for the upcoming children’s Summer Reading Program and the theme this year is, ‘Every Hero Has A Story’. Sign up week is June 15th – 19th and the program is from June 22 nd – July 24th. A volunteer has been helping with making posters and getting them to the local elementary schools, along with information for the parents about the program. We applied for and received a $300 grant from the Samuel and Rose Rudman Trust. The fund has greatly helped towards the purchase of books related to the theme. I wish to thank our volunteer and the Maine Community Foundation.
