Letter: Thank you, United Way

The Milaca Friends of the Library would like to thank the Central Mille Lacs United Way for their generous donation of $1268 to our all-volunteer non-profit organization supporting the Milaca Community Library.

The donation will be used to provide an eight week summer reading program for children and teens. Over 350 children and 50 teens participate in weekly activities that are an incentive to read and continue using the library.

The preschool storytime continues to be a popular weekly adventure. Children in grades one to three have special programs to learn and do related craft projects. The Friends of the Library support the many services and opportunities offered at the library. The computers at the library are always in use for research, study, job searching and enjoyment.

The Friends of the Library provide periodicals for library patrons to read by the fireplace. The donation provided by the United Way helps the Friends of the Library support the Milaca Library to be an asset to our entire community. We are so grateful to all the people who contribute to the United Way Campaign.

Thank you Central Mille Lacs United Way.

Ardy Becklin, Milaca Friends of the Library
