Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library and Miss Becca still have summer reading yard signs and prizes for the kiddos. They can earn those levels through BookPoints (bookpoints.milfordlibrary.net), or guardians can bring the paper log to the Drive-Up Window or email a picture of it to Miss Becca (firstname.lastname@example.org). Hang in there, and keep up the good work!
With the uncertainty of virus still present, MML and Miss Becca are trying to figure out what is best for future youth programming. Please stay tuned to our website (milford.lib.ia.us) and social media for what is to come as we look forward to continuing to connect with the youth and community.
