Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library has three Building Bookworms (storytime) and one Minds in Motion (sensory play) left during this summer’s reading program. This week at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 29, Miss Becca will have a storytime called Watch Out World with the craft being superhero essentials (ex. mask, cape, arm bands). The next two Bookworms will be at 10:30 a.m. on two Thursdays in July. We are excited to be partnering with the Pearson Lakes Art Center for a fun bug craft on July 6, and Miss Becca will round out the summer with one last storytime on July 13. That theme is called Me, Myself, & I, and the craft will be an express yourself poster (i.e., colorful, descriptive poster about the kids). Our last Minds in Motion will be at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, July 10. Please remember this is a casual time where kiddos can play with different sensory items.
