Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
All of the staff at Milford Memorial Library love seeing the families and daycares at the summer reading programs. Here’s what is coming up next at our library. Building Bookworms with Miss Hannah from Dickinson County ISU 4-H & Youth will be at 1:30 p.m. this Wednesday, June 21. Her program will focus on animal sounds, ice cream, and even milking a cow (say what!). Minds in Motion is going well with the kids using their hands and minds with all of the sensory items. Our next one is at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, June 26. To finish out this month, Miss Becca will have a Building Bookworms storytime at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 29. The theme is Watch Out World with the craft being superhero essentials. Reach out to MML with any questions (712-338-4643).
