Join Curt Strutz for an interactive and unique presentation on Wednesday, October 12, at 6:30 p.m., in the Milford Community Center. Guests will take tours through the nation's most haunted locations - possibly including abandoned hospitals, schools, asylums, homes, and more. All done with original photography, deep history, and haunted experiences. Visiting the Beyond is a fun mix of history, photos, storytelling, and humor. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milford Library, Arnolds Park Library, and Spirit Lake Library.
On Wednesday, October 5, an open meeting of the Board of Trustees for the Milford Memorial Library will take place in the Milford Community Center. The agenda will be posted on MML’s website and front bulletin board at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend and offer their thoughts in order to make MML a better library.
Let MML help you have a relaxing fall night in or a lazy fall day. Prepare a slow cooker meal from one of our cookbooks. If you like baking, we have cake pans available. Than wind down by curling up with a good book, movie, or puzzle from MML.
