Join Milford Memorial Library’s Summer Reading Program: Quaranteened Edition. During the summer, Young Adults will need to earn 5,000 points to complete the YA Summer Reading Program. They are able to earn points by reading, finding secret codes, and completing activities. Some of the activities include doing something nice for someone, completing Subscription Box activities, doing something fun and nostalgic from their childhood, writing someone else’s life story, and more. Each time they complete a level, they will earn a badge, prizes, and a raffle ticket toward the end of Summer Reading Program prize. Young Adults (4th-12th grade) can sign up by going online to bookpoints.milfordlibrary.net, through paper logs available at the library, by calling (712) 338-4643, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
