The Spring Egg Hunt is going on now at MML! Fourth graders and up may pick up an egg sheet that has 12 pictures in eggs. Each participant will need to find the objects on the paper, write down what each object is and where it is located. They will then bring the completed sheet to the circulation desk and their name will be entered into a drawing. The hunt ends on Friday, April 7. Thank you to the Friends of the Milford Library for providing the prize.
