Milton Public Library's Library Lope: Let's Dash for Books is a fundraiser created by the library's Teen Advisory Board (TAB). TAB is a group of 15 students who help plan teen services and programs. This year is the Lope's 7th year, and money raised will go towards teen programming and the teen book collection.
This year's event will be run in-person and virtually! The in-person event's location has been changed to start and end at Schilberg Park at 301 W. High St. Milton, WI 53563. We are also bringing back the 1 mile option this year!
