Milford Memorial Library will be closed on Monday, October 10, in observance of Columbus Day. We look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday, October 11.
Get into the Halloween spirit by joining Curt Strutz for Visiting the Beyond, an interactive and unique presentation on Wednesday, October 12, at 6:30 p.m., in the Milford Community Center. Attendees will take tours through the nation's most haunted locations - possibly including abandoned hospitals, schools, asylums, homes, and more. All done with original photography, deep history, and haunted experiences. Visiting the Beyond is a fun mix of history, photos, storytelling, and humor. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milford Library, Arnolds Park Library, and Spirit Lake Library.

Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
October is here! Miss Becca is super excited because she loves Halloween, candy, and fall weather (plus it’s her birthday month!). Join your library friends for three different programs at Milford Memorial Library. The first program is Afterchool Activity: Halloween BINGO at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 13. Then there are two Building Bookworms on backto-back weeks at 10:30 a.m. on Mondays, October 17 and 24. The first theme focuses on space, while the second one focuses on candy corn. Stay current with all of the youth, young adults, and adults programming at Milford Memorial Library through their website, Facebook page, or by stopping by the library (we love to see your happy faces).
