Congratulations to everyone who completed the 2021 Adult Summer Reading Program! We have enjoyed seeing the titles you chose and activities you completed. The Adult Craft Series program and the Paint Night at the Library program were also part of summer reading and we enjoyed crafting and painting with you. Both of these adult programs will be taking a break in August, but will be back in September. In the meantime, you can sign up for our adult programming newsletter at http://milfordlibrary.weebly.com/adult-program-registration.html. This newsletter is sent out once a month and recipients will get the first look at upcoming programming, new books, and some behind the scenes information.
MML’s Young Adult Summer Reading Program has ended for another year. We had 18 Young Adults register and did an amazing job of earning 9,655 points by reading and completing a variety of tasks in 60 days.
Our top readers for MML’s 2021 Young Adult Summer Reading Program are: Brianna, Hudson, and Caden. Participating Young Adults also earned drawing tickets points during the 2021 Summer Reading Program. Our three drawing winners are: MaryAnn, Elle, and Shianne. Winners may pick up their prize at the library. Thank you to the Young Adults for all of their hard work and dedication over the summer. Thank you to the Friends of the Milford Library Foundation for sponsoring the 2021 Young Adult Summer Reading Program: Reading Colors Your World.
Milford Memorial Library and Arnolds Park Public Library provided 69 Young Adult, 4th through 12th graders, Summer Reading Subscription Boxes. The activities included using crayons to make new crayons, a keychain, and slime. They were able to design and grow their own chia pets, sculpted a flower/leaf lantern, and create a water color pencil bag. We had the young adults practice thinking outside the box by using silverware to create a wind chime, create a work of art with a plastic bag, water, and markers, and had them create a card and say “thank you” to someone who has helped them along the way. Each box came with a themed recipe, playlist, watch list, and reading list. Thank you to the Friends of the Milford Library Foundation and the Friends of the Arnolds Park Public Library for sponsoring the 2021 Young Adult Summer Reading Subscription Boxes. Thank you to all the Young Adults who registered and received the YA Summer Reading Subscription Boxes.
Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library has some new youth books called Wonderbooks. They are unique because your child can read along with the audiobook inside of it. They also have the option to go into learning mode where the book will ask your child questions to further their reading. We hope to get more, but the three that we have so far are: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?, Lucky Ducklings, and Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas. Stop by MML and check out a Wonderbook!
