Kids flocking to Millis library

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 22, 2007 12:28 PM


The number of children attending programs at the Millis Public Library has more than quadrupled in the last year, library director Linda Stetson says.

In the fiscal year that ended last month, 1,987 children particpated in 108 library programs. That’s up from 478 children and 35 programs the previous year, Stetson says.

She attributed the jump to the addition of children’s librarian Patricia Perry, who started working at the library last July. During the same period, Stetson says, the library’s overall circulation went up 18 percent.
