On Wednesday, February 1, at 5:30 p.m., an open meeting of the Board of Trustees for the Milford Memorial Library will take place in the Milford Community Center. The agenda will be posted on MML’s website and front bulletin board at least 24 hours in advance of the meeting. Everyone is welcome to attend and offer their thoughts in order to make MML a better library.
Mark your calendars for MML’s Blind Date with a Book. There will be no awkward or forced conversions and no need to call. There will be no title or description on the wrapping. You will only know the book’s genre. It could be a diamond in the rough or one you want to return right away. You won’t know until you check it out. Pick up your book date Wednesday, February 1, through Tuesday, February 28.
Let MML help you escape or plan you next adventure. If a stay-at-home escape is what you want, then we recommend the books People You Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry, The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe, or The Guest Cottage by Nancy Thayer. However, if you are planning your next getaway check into 1000 Perfect Weekends: Great Getaways Around the Globe by National Geographic, our collection of Fodor’s Travel guides (American Southwest, Rome, Italy, and more), and 50 States, 500 Campgrounds: Where to Go, When to Go, What to See, What to Do by Joe Yogerst.
