During Holiday Fantasy, adults were able to talk and watch as the kids proudly displayed their Christmas crafts and visited with Santa. Everyone enjoyed delicious treats and drinks provided by the Friends of the Milford Memorial Library, while they voted for their favorite trees. Thank you to everyone who joined us in celebrating the beginning of the holiday season.
Friday, December 17, is the last day MML will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Dickinson County Upper Des Moines Food Pantry. Please help us fill up the grocery cart by bringing in your donation during open hours.
MML’s book club, the Open Book Discussion Group, invites any interested individuals to come and discuss the featured book, The Dutch House by Ann Patchett, on Tuesday, December 21, at 1:00 p.m. Copies can be found at the library. It is not necessary to attend all of the meetings, and you are welcome to come and go as you please.
Fourth through twelfth graders can register for MML’s Young Adult Subscription Box: Let’s Build a Snowman. With this subscription box, they will create a snowman measuring spoon, wood bead snowman ornament, and a 3D paper snowman. A reading list, watch list, play list, and a recipe are added little flakes of fun. The Subscription Box is free, but registration is required. Registration may be done by calling 712-338-4643 or online at http://milfordlibrary.weebly.com/ya-subscription-box-registratoin.html.
As the weather starts getting cold and snowy and your car is comfy cozy, remember you may pick up your reserved library materials at MML’s drive-up window. The drive-up window is located on the east side of the building, closest to Hwy 71, and a call button is located to the side of the drawer. This will alert staff and someone will be over to help you.
Making a homemade gift, which requires some printing? MML can help you! We can make copies or print materials for your project. Normal printing prices apply ($0.25 for black and white per page and $0.50 for color per page).
Milford Memorial library will be closed on Friday, December 24, and Saturday, December 25, in observance of the Christmas Holiday. We will be back open on Monday, December 27, at 9:30 a.m.
