Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Summer will be here before we know it, and Milford Memorial Library has a lot of things planned for the kiddos. We will have Building Bookworms (storytimes) with local favorites, Minds in Motion (sensory playdates), and an interactive reading-activity bookmark where prizes can be earned along the way. Plus, our library will join with Spirit Lake and Arnolds Park for several joint get togethers. Stay tuned for more details, but mark your calendar down for the Kick Off Celebration movie on Thursday, June 1.
MML still has youth programming going on in May, which includes Afterschool Activity: Point Art at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 11, Building Bookworms: Llamas at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, May 15, and Minds in Motion at 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16. There is so much creativity happening at our library!
