Book it to the food drive! Help fill up the grocery cart for Dickinson County Upper Des Moines by bringing in non-perishable food items to the Milford Memorial Library. We will be collecting items until Friday, December 17.
We are excited to announce the Milford Memorial Library now has four hotspots available for members to check out. These hotspots provide wireless internet access to the user. Three of the four hotspots at the Milford Memorial Library were provided by a grant received from the Okoboji Foundation Youth in Philanthropy and the fourth hotspot is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Milford Memorial Library. Hotspots can be checked out for a seven-day period with one renewal. After that they will need to be brought back to the library. There is a charge of $1 per day the hotspot is late. It will be shut off if it is lost or not returned and the patron will be charged for the hotspot. There are other charges for lost items related to the hotspots. Only one hotspot can be checked out per family. These devices are great for streaming/entertainment, work/business, school, travel/vacation, and events being hosted in the area. Each hotspot can provide internet to 15 devices at once. Contact the Milford Memorial Library to check out a hotspot or for more information.
