Milo Library Online Catalog

 We are so excited to bring a couple of new things to you!!! The first one is that we have spent the last year barcoding the libraries collection and putting them into the computer and we are three quarters of the way done!  The following link will take you to our collection so you can see if we have the books you are looking for or to just browse our collection.  Keep in mind that not all of our books are done yet so if you don't see it there please contact us and we will check those books not barcoded yet. Just click the following link to go see our collection  http://opac.libraryworld.com/opac/home

The wonderful thing about World Book and their products is they have set it up so you don't have to be in the library to access this product.  If you have internet access you can click the picture below and go straight to the Milo Library's World Book Online pages from home, school, your cell phone, e reader, etc. etc.  Please take the time to go look at their pages as they have wonderful reference materials, links, and information.  The kids page has reference material, games, scavenger hunts, and video clips to make it fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Teen Book Club

 

Tenn Book club will be meeting on Monday November 4th from 6:30 to 7:30.  The book we will be reading is Divergent by Veronica Roth.

 

 

 

DivergentIn Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago world, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles alongside her fellow initiates to live out the choice they have made. Together they must undergo extreme physical tests of endurance and intense psychological simulations, some with devastating consequences. As initiation transforms them all, Tris must determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes exasperating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers unrest and growing conflict that threaten to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Book Club

 

Book Club will be meeting on Tuesday October 22nd from 6:30 to 7:30 to discuss the book Bite of the Mango by

 

Bite of the MangoThe astounding story of one girl's journey from war victim to UNICEF Special Representative.

As a child in a small rural village in Sierra Leone, Mariatu Kamara lived peacefully surrounded by family and friends. Rumors of rebel attacks were no more than a distant worry.

But when 12-year-old Mariatu set out for a neighboring village, she never arrived. Heavily armed rebel soldiers, many no older than children themselves, attacked and tortured Mariatu. During this brutal act of senseless violence they cut off both her hands.

Stumbling through the countryside, Mariatu miraculously survived. The sweet taste of a mango, her first food after the attack, reaffirmed her desire to live, but the challenge of clutching the fruit in her bloodied arms reinforced the grim new reality that stood before her. With no parents or living adult to support her and living in a refugee camp, she turned to begging in the streets of Freetown.

In this gripping and heartbreaking true story, Mariatu shares with readers the details of the brutal attack, its aftermath and her eventual arrival in Toronto. There she began to pull together the pieces of her broken life with courage, astonishing resilience and hope.
