Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
We had a great crowd last week at Milford Memorial Library’s Building Bookworms: Dinosaurs. For this theme, Miss Becca read two dinosaur stories, everyone danced like dinosaurs and counted up to 10 with different kinds of them, and lastly the kiddos made their own dinosaur mask and feet. Everyone was also able to take home a toy squirting dinosaur/dragon. Thank you so much to all of the families for coming to MML’s storytime and making our library a place to be during your day.
As February wraps up, Miss Becca has one more program. It will be another Building Bookworms, and it will focus on teeth. It will be at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, February 28, at MML. The craft will be a marshmallow mouth, and there will also be a special surprise for the kiddos from two local dentists.
