The Summer Reading Program is here!

          This year, the Millstadt Library is taking reading outdoors. For grades Kindergarten through 8th, children can come by the Library to pick up a weekly reading log. After reading age-appropriate books, the log can be returned that week for a weekly prize. The more books you read, the more chances you have to win a grand prize. Our grand prizes this year are a mini tablet with a case and headphones, a Harry Potter box-set, a camping kit including tent, sleeping bag, and lantern/flashlight set, and our Millstadt Rocks! prize that contains gift cards and items from places all around town!
            It’s important that children continue to read throughout the summer to help fight the summer gap and maintain their comprehension skills. Check out our FB page @MillstadtLibrary and our website, to learn more about our Summer Reading Program and our prizes. Feel free to give us a call or stop by for more information. Good Luck, and Good Reading!

Book Club!

Book ClubCitizens, welcome to Book Club. The first rule of Book Club is: You do not talk about Book Club. The second rule of Book Club is: You do not talk about Book- Wait, actually you do!

Love reading books but have no one to discuss them with? Want to get into reading but don’t know where to start? Starting June 1st and held on the first Saturday of each month, the Millstadt Library Book Club will take place! We’ll provide the books and the Club will be led by Jennifer Gratteau. We’ll provide tea and you can provide the “T” on the books!

The first meeting will be informational and you will all decide how the Book Club is established and which book (we will have some ready) you will all start with. And the eighth and final rule: If this is your first time at Book Club, you have to read!
