Humor, fun and interaction with the kids.
Children are encouraged to choose books appropriate for their age and fill out tokens for books they have read or books that have been read to them. Tokens are drawn each week for prizes so be sure to turn them in! Using the Reading Log to list the books read each week and watching it grow throughout the summer gives each child a sense of accomplishment. Our goals are to encourage children to use the library, motivate them to read and maintain their reading skills during summer vacation.
If you haven’t registered, stop by the library to pick up a form or print one off from our website http://www.milford.lib.ia.us. Pre-registration is encouraged and enables us to plan more effectively, but everyone is encouraged to bring friends and family whether they have registered or not.
