News Article

October, 2014


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).


Ongoing Book Sale – There have been many more books added to our books for sale.  Paperbacks are still 10 cents and hardbacks are 25 cents or five for a dollar.  Who can beat that price?

RT 11 Project Update 9-30-2014

Submitted by Izzy Warren on September 30, 2014 - 1:43pm

    The RT 11 and Safe Streets Projects are finally coming together over the next two weeks. The RT 11 Project work for this week consists of getting the paving completed on the entrances to streets, driveways and parking lots, as well as repairing many sections of the sidewalks here in Milo. As usual, this will mean laborers, flaggers, trucks and equipment in the streets on Main and Park Street. Your patience and cooperation will help to speed the work along in order to get them done and out of here sooner.
     A second crew is due to start this week on doing the pavement stamping and applying the colored, textured coatings. They will also be installing the truncated domes (bumpy pads) at the ends of the crosswalks and preparing for the line painting and pavement marking. There are a number of new crosswalks that are being installed by the MDOT contract. The painting and striping is likely to occur next week, into the following week. Milo's new street lights will finally arrive and be installed later this week as part of our Safe Streets Project. All in all, by October 18th, Milo will look incredibly better as a result of years of hard work dreaming, planning and now finally doing the work to make it all possible.
    There are many other driveway entrances to be paved, ditches to be cleaned and mess along the shoulders to be picked up during the next two weeks. This extends throughout the whole of the project area, including on the Brownville end. Again, your patience and cooperation will help to speed the work along in order to get them done and out of here sooner.
    Please take note that they have done an exceptionally good job for our communities, including a great deal of work not originally contracted for.
