Happy National Library Week 2023!
Updated: Apr 27
If you've been to your library, then you know, that "There's More to the Story" at the Millstadt Library.
Sure, we have books - over 15,000! But we also have over 500 audio books, over 90 DVDs, over 500 music CDs, and growing collections of kits, Playaways, puzzles for checkout, and video games.
Let's also not forget our amazing add-ons you can access on-the-go; Cloud Library - the home of over 20,000 e-books and online audio books; Biblio+ - the home of free, ad-free streaming TV, movies, and documentaries.
And a super service you should always check out before you travel in Illinois, Explore More Illinois! This library card perk lets you reserve free and discounted admission, parking, and gift store purchases from cultural and recreational attractions in Illinois, including museums, cultural centers, zoos, aquariums, gardens, historical societies, park districts, and more.
As always, don't forget that your library card gives you access to the materials available at over 500+ member libraries that you can have delivered to your Millstadt Library, or you can go check out at the library of your choice!
And if you DON'T have a library card? No problem! You can either sign up for one, purchase a non-resident card, or we can help work around it. We always have free programs, activities, and do our best to get some reading materials to you without a cost.
Besides all of those great things, your Millstadt Library and libraries everywhere strive to be a true asset to the community. From small things like helping with directions and finding phone numbers to getting proper forms for paper work, printing documents, navigating the internet and more. There is no request we really do not try to accommodate and that's because librarians are problem solvers at heart. We listen to your needs and find solutions - whether its the right book or helping to find small business resources. If you're ever in need, all you have to do is find the library and ask a librarian, they'll know what to do. (And if not, they'll help you figure it out!)
Celebrate all week long with us by partaking in our daily Spirit Themes, joining in a library activity, or posting online on our Facebook @MillstadtLibrary with our prompts below! And keep on the lookout as we share some new, exciting items we'll have available for checkout!
