Congratulations to Will Anderson, Elliana Antoine, and Riley Meyer. They are the winners of our 2020 Summer Reading Program: Quarateened Edition raffle. You may pick up your prizes through the library drive-up window.
It is game over for MML’s Summer Reading Program: Quaranteen Edition and the young adults crushed it! We had 24 young adults earn over 90,000 points, read 325 hours, and register for 85 subscription boxes throughout the summer. Recipients of the Subscription Boxes enjoyed making dragon eggs, owls, along with other entertaining crafts. Thank you to the Friends of the Milford Memorial Library for sponsoring the Young Adult Summer Reading Program. As a result of this support, participants were able to achieve higher goals over the summer. Also thank you to the Arnolds Park Public Library and their foundation for partnering with us this summer to bring the YA Subscription Boxes to life. Combining our efforts helped to grow our Young Adult Summer Reading Programs.
Adult Summer Reading Program participants, make sure to bring your completed bookmark back to the library or log your reading online at bookpoints.milfordlibrary.net before Labor Day (September 7) for prizes.
