Milford Memorial Library’s Spring Egg Hunt is going on now! Fourth graders and up may pick up an egg sheet that has 12 picture eggs. Each participant will need to find the objects on the paper, write down what each object is and where it is located. They will then bring the completed sheet to the circulation desk and their name will be entered into a drawing. The hunt is over on Friday, April 8, at 5:00 p.m.

This event will be held at Milford Memorial Library, on Monday April 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Fourth through twelfth graders will be watching Disney’s Cruella, making a Maleficent staff pen, and eating pizza.
