Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
We had an amazing turnout for Milford Memorial Library’s Spring Coloring Contest. The final number of pictures throughout the four age groups were 193 entries. All of the pictures will be up on our walls and windows for the next couple of weeks.
Summer will be here before we know it, which means our library will have another reading program with this year’s theme, Find Your Voice! We will have Building Bookworms, Minds in Motion, Read with Miss Becca, and an interactive reading-activity bookmark. Larger programming will be combined between the three local libraries (Milford, Spirit Lake, Arnolds Park).
