Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Mark your calendars for another Building Bookworms at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, November 21, at Milford Memorial Library. This storytime will be about being thankful and kind, and the craft will be huggable hands. While you’re at the library, don’t forget to check out the November youth book displays. They include Thanksgiving, hiking, writing, games and puzzles, and trains. So much to read, so little time!
This week’s library feature is the Youth Reading Resources folder on the table in front of Miss Becca’s desk. Here grown-ups can find a variety of papers to help with their kiddo’s understanding and love of reading. Some examples include parts of a story, book talk questions, and reading tips for at home. Miss Becca updates this folder monthly, so please stop by Milford Memorial Library to grab some reading resources.
