Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library has a variety of youth book displays during February. They include Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, Mo Willems, Presidents Day, and polar bears. We always have new fiction and non-fiction, New York Times Best Sellers, and 14 Wonderbooks. A Wonderbook is a book that can be read aloud as your kiddo turns the pages with a reading option at the end of the story.
Our library also has some exciting news! We have new toys available for the kiddos, and we plan to rotate them so everyone can have new experiences. Our second bit of news is that we will be starting a brand new program in March for kiddos who aren’t quite ready for school, but still want to explore and learn with their bodies.
