We are looking forward to seeing the various ways the Young Adults will complete these activities. The first MML Young Adult Challenge Box will be available in September, so be on the lookout. These are free, but registration will be required.

Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library had a blast at the 2022 Okoboji Blue Water Festival. Miss Becca read two stories about water and Earth, had the kiddos move around like a little fishy, and concluded with them making their own fabulous fish. Thank you to Greg and Julie for asking us to be a part of this festival, as well as we appreciated all of the families for showing up that morning.
Read with Miss Becca went well, and we had four families take part in it. The individual sessions were a fun, relaxed time to read and interact with the kids. Plus, it was a great way for them to get back into school mode. We look forward to implementing this program again.
