Milford Memorial Library News: Kids' Corner
The local construction work and long road lines won’t affect Milford Memorial Library over the next couple of weeks, so stop by with your family and friends. We are open every weekday and Saturday. The youth area has toys, puzzles, a coloring station, AWE computers, and of course, lots and lots of books. Also each month, Miss Becca sets out different book displays to make it easier when picking out books for the kiddos.
Miss Becca’s favorite month, October, will be here soon. Here are six great programs during the month: Building Bookworms (storytime, Mondays at 10:30 a.m.), Minds in Motion (sensory play, Mondays at 10:30 a.m.), and Afterschool Adventures (small group fun, 2nd Thursday at 3:30 p.m.).
Check back with our Facebook page and programming calendar next week for all of the specifics.
