Lit to Film Club: Forrest Gump

Did you know that the movie Forrest Gump was based off a novel by Winston Groom?

We’ll be watch­ing the movie and dis­cussing the book at our next Lit to Film Club on Thursday, March 8th at 6:00 p.m.

Stop by the li­brary and pick up a copy! (It’s a pretty fun and quick read.)

As al­ways, there’ll be pop­corn and you’re wel­come to bring your own snacks, too. Hope to see you there!

Truth-​In-​Taxation and Budget Hearing Notice

This is a Truth-​In-​Taxation and bud­get hear­ing no­tice to sup­port the pro­posed bud­get for the fis­cal year 2018-​2019. The Millington Arbela District Library Board in­tends to levy its al­lo­cated mill­age of .9918 mill on all real and per­sonal prop­erty within the Millington Arbela District Library’s le­gal ser­vice area.

The library’s in­come from prop­erty taxes is cal­cu­lated by mul­ti­ply­ing the tax­able value of the prop­erty in the library’s le­gal ser­vice area by the al­lo­cated mill­age.

This al­lo­cated mill­age may be re­duced by the Tuscola County Equalization Office to com­pen­sate for an in­crease in the as­sessed value of real and per­sonal prop­erty in each of the town­ships that ex­ceeds the rate of in­fla­tion. The Headlee Amendment reg­u­lates this re­duc­tion.

The pur­pose of the Truth-​In-​Taxation hear­ing is to re­tain as much of the money gen­er­ated by new con­struc­tion in the library’s le­gal ser­vice area as is al­lowed by the Headlee Amendment.

The Truth-​In-​Taxation meet­ing is sched­uled for Tuesday, February 27, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. in the Frieda Meachum Conference Room lo­cated in the Millington Arbela District Library. 

After the Truth-​In-​Taxation meet­ing, the library’s reg­u­lar board meet­ing will fol­low with a draft bud­get for the 2018-​2019 fis­cal year to be pre­sented and dis­cussed.

Pursuant to the Open Meetings Act, these meet­ings are open to the pub­lic to at­tend. If you need spe­cial ac­com­mo­da­tions, please con­tact the Library Director, Jill Wioskowki, at (989) 871-​2003 or via email at jwioskowski@​millingtonlibrary.​info.

Silent Book Club

What’s Silent Book Club?
There’s no as­signed read­ing. Silent Book Club is about tak­ing time out of your busy sched­ule to sim­ply re­lax and read. You’ve earned it.
Often with tra­di­tional book clubs there’s the scram­ble to fin­ish the as­signed book, and the pres­sure to have some­thing smart to say. Wouldn’t it be great to have a book club where you could just en­joy books, friends, and lunch — with­out any home­work?
Bring your lunch. Bring your book.
