An invitation to Millie’s Garden
Millie’s Garden is just the right spot for active family fun – or for quiet contemplation. Located on the southern edge of the Library property, and bordered on the west by the Charles and Albert Parker Families Nature Preserve, this lovely site is home to the Reading House. Enter via the Youth Dept. door or “hike in” from the parking lot.
Named for Mildred Lintner, who helped to bring this special space to life, the Garden is the perfect picnic spot. Bring a cup of coffee, and find a seat or spread a blanket on the lawn to enjoy a good book. We invite you to visit this Library treasure soon.
If you are interested in becoming a garden volunteer or in being a garden sponsor, please contact Diana Dart, at 810-229-6571, ext. 211 or email@example.com.
