Business Description

While people still associate a Library with BOOKS (yes, books do take up most of Library’s floor-space!), the Library offers so much more:
  • Internet access and Wifi – use one of our many public computers to look for a job, read email, work on a project, or watch YouTube
  • Youth programming for babies to teens
  • Life-long learning programs for older adults
  • Reading for information and entertainment – books, magazines, newspapers
  • Movies and music to offer cultural enrichment
  • Pronunciator – a service available for free (with current library card) giving access to learn more than 80 languages
  • Databases which provide access to thousands of vetted resource materials and subscriptions on line every day.

Read for the Record Donegal!
Milanof-Schock Library is excited to be participating once again in Jumpstart’s annual Read for the
Record challenge on Thursday, October 28! This year the Library’s Miss Jan has teamed up with Hannah
Ferrara, the new head of Donegal High School’s English Department, and Frank Hawkins, of the DHS
Athletic Department, to have high school students take part in the annual RFTR book blitz.

The high school students and teachers will board buses on Thursday, October 28 to journey to Donegal
Intermediate School and Donegal Primary School to read “Amy Wu and the Patchwork Dragon” by Kat
Zhang to classrooms. The goal of this challenge is to join worldwide with others to break the record of
reading the same book on the same day! Miss Jan will also read this book for her Library Story Time at
10:30 on that day. A copy of the storybook will be available for checkout afterwards.

Jumpstart’s Read for the Record is a powerful way to come together around the power of reading.
Schools, libraries, museums, and other organizations help bring Jumpstart’s Read for the Record alive
in communities around the world. From large-group readings in school auditoriums to story hours and
community-wide reading festivals, Read for the Record is truly an opportunity to rally your school,
library, or larger community around the importance of high-quality early learning experiences. To find
