Enjoy the company of others while you work on a knitting project for you or your family. Come to the Milford Public Library for Afternoon Knitting Club from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Aug. 24. Bring your yarn, needles and come join us. This is a great time to share your knitting ideas and get help with projects you are working on.
Twelve teens came to the Lock-In on Thursday, Aug. 2, and survived to tell about it! Each teen made a Zombie Feltie of their own design to take home.
We enjoyed a delicious meal of sloppy joes, chili dogs, or nachos. Everyone was very excited to watch our “Own the Night” video for the first time at midnight. The video was a big project and everyone involved worked very hard to make sure it was a success. Stay tuned for information on how to view the video from our website!
Then it was time for miniature golf, balloon volleyball in the stacks and twister. We watched some movies and had popcorn and candy. Most of the teens stayed up all night, having lots of fun. After a quick clean up and breakfast, some very sleepy teens were picked up by their parents at 8 a.m. Friday morning. The brave adults supervising the Lock-In were Maureen Haab, Tina Meerzo and Julie Frew, who also had fun and survived!
The library will be closed on Monday, September 3 for Labor Day. The library will re-open at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4.
Students, the library has Accelerated Reader books available. The books are marked with a blue sticker and in the back of each book is the level and how many points the book is worth.The Library has several new titles at different reading levels that have been added to our collection over the summer. Start the school year off right with a good book!
