Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Join Milford Memorial Library for our annual Read Across America BINGO program. All your family needs to do is either stop by our library, or go to the Youth webpage to grab the BINGO card (milford.lib.ia.us/youth). Then have the kiddos get to work by filling in the reading squares in order to earn a small prize and/or a prize drawing entry. This program runs from March 1-31.
We also have something new for the littles who aren’t quite ready for school. It is called Minds in Motion, and it is a sensory based program with no instruction. Instead, there are different options for the kiddos to explore and learn with their bodies. The first program is at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21.
