Milford Memorial Library: Youth News
Have you visited the Milford Memorial Library lately? Well, your family must hurry to see what was left behind by colorful monster. Here is a clue, they are markings made by feet! Follow these special marks to the youth area where your whole family can pick out some books from the October displays. This month includes Karma Wilson, Halloween, pink books (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), wolves (Wolf Awareness Week), and mental health (Mental Health Day). Then while the kiddos search for pumpkin letters in order to answer a funny joke, the colorful monster expects the adults to grab a Programming Calendar (pssst, they are on the front desk). Here are two programs for the kiddos: Afterschool Adventures (Halloween BINGO) at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 12, and Building Bookworms (Fire Safety; edible fire truck) at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, October 16.
