We had the pleasure of having the author, Joan Calder from Santa Barbara, California visit us this week.  She spoke at the Milo Garden Club and the topic was monarch butterflies.  She is also a horticulturist and garden designer. She travels the U.S. to educate the public about monarch migration and the importance of preserving their habitat.  Joan donated a children’s book that she signed to the Milo Library called Airplanes in the Garden which was published in 2011.  It tells of the monarch’s beginnings as an egg through the butterfly stage.  The story is awesome.  The watercolor illustrations by Cathy Quiel are beautiful.  Thank you, Joan.

 

Our current adult fiction Special Book Display theme is ‘A House Full of Books’.  There is a good variety of authors and subjects to choose from and you might find an author that you like that is new to you.

 

We continue to add many donated adult and children’s books to our library.  We have a nice selection of varied interests (fiction and non-fiction).

The Summer Reading Program, ‘Fizz, Boom, Read” was very successful.  Thirty children were signed up which includes the Milo Day Care.  The attendance was strong throughout the five week program.  Two of the giveaways consisted of growing your own crystals and a growing dinosaur in a fizzing volcano.   The kids had a good time with these and I could hardly resist myself.  A total of 760 books were read.  Keep on reading, kids!!  It’s fun and important.
