National Library Week
The 60th annual National Library Week will be observed April 8 through April 14. This week is designated to acknowledge libraries’ contributions to our communities and to promote library use.
Milan Public Library strives to provide information, education, and recreation for our community through its collections, programs, and services. The library offers books, movies, audiobooks, ebooks, jigsaw puzzles, cake pans, mobile hotspots, and more to check out. Programs are offered for all ages, from Tiny Tales for toddlers through book clubs for adults, and events for everyone in between.
This month, the library is introducing two new items: American Girl dolls and Kill A Watt™ devices. Rachel Madynski has donated two American Girl dolls, Samantha and Addy. These dolls will be available to check out on April 18 You can reserve them now (Samantha, Addy). Samantha represents the early 20th century and Addy represents the Civil War era. The library also owns the American Girl books about these two characters; you can check out the books with the dolls to read their stories. The library appreciates Rachel’s donation which allows these dolls to be available to our community.
Thanks to the Friends of the Milan Library, two Kill A Watt™ devices will soon be available to check out for a one-week period. The Kill A Watt™ is an energy meter that allows you to easily and accurately measure how much electrical power is being used by your household appliances and electronic devices, including energy they use when turned off (known as “vampire loads”). Knowledge is power!
Stop by the library this week to see all we have to offer you: books, DVDs, audiobooks, magazines, jigsaw puzzles, cake pans, and more!
