Milford Memorial Library’s Young Adult Subscription Box is back with Power Up in September. This box will get you moving and looking at healthy habits. You will be making your own free weights and creating your own exercise routine with DIY workout cards. Recipes will help you before and after your work out, a motivational playlist, and lists of inspirational books and media to watch are included in the box. This active box begins on Tuesday, September 13, and runs through Friday, September 24. This is a free program, but registration is required. Young adults may register by calling (712) 338-4643 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Subscription Boxes maybe picked up at the library.

Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library and Miss Becca are getting ready for some fall youth programming. Each month there will be Building Bookworms (storytime) every other Monday, as well as Afterschool Activity being on the second Thursday. Here is what MML has planned so far in September. At 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 9, we will be doing chalk art in the east parking lot. Then at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, September 20, the storytime theme will be colors with the craft being a mosaic paper chameleon. We also plan to have Miss Iowa 2021, Grace Keller, put on a special storytime in September, but we are waiting to confirm that date and time. Please stay tuned for more information with our website (http://www.milford.lib.ia.us) or our Facebook page (@milfordlibrary).
