Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Throughout each month at Milford Memorial Library, there will be an extra collection of themed books that can be checked out by the kiddos. These books include non-fiction, fiction, board, and easy readers. All of these items can be found on one of the youth tables in a plastic tub with ‘READ’ letters on it. The themes this month are snow and pets.
Besides library storytimes and after school activity, Miss Becca also works with the local community. She is involved with four daycares and elementary students, specifically Head Start through Second Grade. Each group gets to see and listen to some stories, move around, and have access to a coloring/activity page. Daycares also get monthly storytime kits.
