Join us for Summer Library Fun!
Updated June 30, 2021
School is out and the library has all kinds of fun events going on. We’d love to have you join us! Reading tracking began on May 22 and will continue until Saturday, August 21, 2021. We welcome all ages from newborn through adult to join us.
We have 4 reading levels this year. Just pick your group!
- Read to Me will read about 10 minutes a day for a total of 13 hours over the summer.
- Casual Reader will read about 15 minutes a day for a total of 23 hours over the summer.
- Avid Reader will read about 20 minutes a day for a total of 30 hours over the summer.
- Dedicated Reader will read about 30 minutes a day for a total of 46 hours over the summer.
We don’t really care when you read so long as you do! So if you miss a day or two here and there and catch up later, it all counts! If you are reading to a younger sibling or a child, those hours count for you too. It doesn’t matter if you’re reading an e-book, listening to an audiobook, reading a magazine, a book, or even a cereal box. It all counts! You can either track your reading via a paper log available at the library or through the Reader Zone app. Just use code 6fb58
to register. We’ve got prizes you can win too, so stop by the library and see what’s up for grabs!
Our summer programs can be found on our calendar (click on Calendar of Events at the bottom of this page) or on our Facebook page. We don’t limit our programs to only those registered to read with us. If you have visiting family, please bring them to programs. We’d love to meet them all!
Welcome to our Library
Milledgeville, Illinois, is a small community (population 1,100) located in the northwest corner of Illinois. The Milledgeville Public Library was built in 1923 in the prairie style and erected in memory of an early educator, Mary Fletcher.
Our library collection includes 10,000 books, both fiction and nonfiction, one hundred DVDs and 100 books on CD and tape. We are now able to provide e-books at no cost to our patrons through a grant from the Illinois State Library. If we don’t have a book you need, we can get it through interlibrary loan. We can also supply copy and fax services. We are also excited to announce that we are in the process of putting our library catalog online.
