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.
On Monday, February 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Milford Memorial Library and the Arnolds Park Library invite fourth through twelfth graders for Young Adults Day Off (Y.A.D.O.).

Milford Memorial Library: Youth
Corner Even though it may be winter and full of snow, ice, and cold, Miss Becca at Milford Memorial Library is thinking of sun, warmth, and another youth summer reading program. Our library wants to change things up this year when it comes to the reading and prize portions. So we need your input at the following survey link: https://forms.gle/NhezjUSw2pDCZqWe9. There are only three simple questions. Thank you for your time and help!
Love is almost in the air here at our library, which means new programs, book displays, and library decorations for the kiddos. Please mark your calendars for Building Bookworms at 10:30 a.m. on Mondays, February 6 and 13, and Afterschool Activity at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 9.
