Monday, March 28, through Friday, April 8, MML’s Spring Egg Hunt will be taking place. Fourth graders through adults are encouraged to come look around the library and locate objects from the Spring Egg Hunt sheet. Once completed and turned in at the library’s front desk, names will be entered into a drawing.
MML Patrons are able to reserve materials by going to milford.lib.ia.us. Once the webpage loads, click on “Search Our Catalog” located on the left-hand side. This will bring up our online catalog. Patrons will enter their card number and phone number in the respective boxes and click “Login”. When patron is logged in, it will display their library card number. Once a patron has found something to reserve, click on the title and the title’s information will drop down. Click “Reserve this item”. A screen will pop-up and ask you to verify how the patron would like to notified when the reserve is ready for pick up and if they would like to pick it up at the circulation desk or the drive-up window. When information is correct, click “Place Reserve”. Once reserved, there will be a message stating this item has been reserved and what place in line patron is currently in for the material.
