We’re back! The Friends of the Milton Library is seeking volunteers! We’ve had a few months off while our “shed” has undergone some renovations, but we’re ready to make up for lost time. We are currently meeting every Monday morning at 9:15 in the shed beside the Milton Library to sort and shelve books. If you are interested in joining us, come to the Milton Library any Monday morning (except holidays) or call the library for information. Their number is 850-981-7323. Please keep in mind that we are a very, very small nonproﬁt group and we want you to join us for $10 per year. We love books, and supporting our community – come join us!

“Report on Spring Book Sale
By: Linda Laliberte-Schmidt
From the time of our last book sale in the fall FOML volunteers have been working toward the Spring Book Sale. Organizing and sorting the many donations of our generous community. All of the donations of books and money keeps our organization together to help our local library. Whole families turned out for the fun! FOML’s Book Committee with the help of Volunteers from NAS Whiting Field supervised by Dave Castro did a lot of the heavy lifting and were able to put together a wide selection of books for every age group in our community. It was a lot of work!” See the rest of this article in the June 2016 newsletter.

Join us in celebrating the Santa Rosa County Library System’s 10th birthday! The library system has made some changes over the past 10 years, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the significant contributions the library system has made to the community.
With so much to do at your local library, now is the perfect time to get acquainted or reacquainted with your library and enjoy the gifts of reading and lifelong learning.
Our success over the years has a lot to do with you, our patrons. To thank you for being part of our story, enter to win a $10 gift card for a book store when you check out items on the 10th of each month through October. Gift cards are provided through the generosity of the Friends of the Library groups. There will be one winner each month at each library.
On October 10, a special birthday party will be held at all five Santa Rosa County libraries in Gulf Breeze, Jay, Milton, Navarre, and Pace. Stay tuned for details!

All of the donations of books and money keeps our organization together to help our local library. Whole families turned out for the fun! FOML’s Book Committee with the help of Volunteers from NAS Whiting Field supervised by Dave Castro did a lot of the heavy lifting and were able to put together a wide selection of books for every age group in our community. It was a lot of work! Thankfully, we saw many satisfied customers and we seemed to outdo sales in the past. The money earned will assist our library system with supplies, furniture, books, equipment and programs. Our heartfelt thanks go out to our community, and a fond farewell to Dave Castro. Good Luck Dave on yournew posting in San Diego, we are indebted to the volunteers from NAS Whiting Field for saving our older backs. Welcome to Dave’s replacement TJ Wever. The efforts of our own volunteers and especially our own FOML Book Committee members are greatly needed and appreciated.
