Milford Memorial Library is excited to announce that Caroline Perkins and her dog, Hank, will be available to listen to stories Saturday, May 6, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.! Caroline and Hank are a therapy dog team, licensed by the Pet Partners Therapy Animal Program. In the past they worked for 5 years in Cable, WI, as part of the Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D) program. Prior to the R.E.A.D. program Caroline was a Special Education Teacher. Hank is a great listener and loves to listen to all kinds of stories. Children who are beginner readers or just want a chance to improve on reading aloud are encouraged to come read to Hank. Children can read to Hank on a first come, first serve basis. The amount of time a child will get to read to Hank is determined by the length of the book, child’s reading level, and the number of children waiting to read to Hank.
Join Presenter Brad Wilkening as he talks about Lessons of the Holocaust on Monday, May 8, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Milford Memorial Library. "Bullying and indifference start at an early age, and we have a responsibility to help create a safer more caring environment. We need to be up standers and not bystanders in the face of evil. My goal is to keep the lessons of the holocaust alive," said Wilkening. He will give a presentation about how he got interested in the Holocaust, show a short video of him talking with a Holocaust survivor, and have a time to answer questions.
