Milford Memorial Library: Youth Corner
Milford Memorial Library had its first two programs of the fall. The first one was chalk art, and the second one was Miss Iowa 2021. All of the kids had a great time making their own designs with chalk, as well as meeting a real life “princess.” Keep an eye out for information about the new 4-H Clover Kids. Registration will be open soon with the first program taking place at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, September 27.
