Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library and Miss Becca would love for your family to be a part of December’s youth programming. There are two opportunities for Grab and Go Bags and Books. The first one’s theme is Santa, and it will run from December 7-18. The craft will be a toilet paper roll Santa searcher.
The second one’s theme is cookies, and it will run from December 21-31. The craft will be a Cookie Monster cut out. There will be 35 bags, and they will be outside on Mondays (weather dependent) and the Drive-up Window the rest of the week. Please feel free to reserve a bag and some books by getting in contact with Miss Becca (firstname.lastname@example.org, 338-4643). It will make things so much easier for you, and you will have happy kiddos.
