The Centre for Family Literacy visited the Millet Public Library on August 13 for a fun filled morning with children and parents attending. The parents learned how children develop speaking and reading skills as well as simple ideas and fun activities to do at home, while their children had an extended story time. Then they all visited the C.O.W Bus (Classroom On Wheels) complete with a MOOOO horn and activities for the children.

The TD Summer Reading Club was held for six weeks with lots of activities and fun for school aged children. This program encourages children to read all summer and have lots of fun doing all the activities the library had planned. Sparkle Tattoo with Shannon Hoflin, did over 40 tattoos to kick off the summer program.

Friends of the Millet Library Society hosted a 60th Anniversary party for the Millet Library with Face Painting, Belly Dancers, Live music, Race Cars and Fire Department all helping celebrate. They are making the draw for the raffle of a painting by Betty Dragon, Afghan donated by Susan Brown, 2 bottles of Wine, and a $100 dollar gift card to Fas Gas at the Harvest Fest on August 23 at the Agriplex. If you haven`t bought your ticket yet, you still can stop by the library and get them. They also participated in the community garage sale at the end of June.
