We’re Having a Heat Wave!
Fold up those long johns and experience a tropical paradise right in the middle of Milford! During the month of March, we are having a “heat wave”. No matter what the weather is outside, inside our library the materials are hot off the press. We are tired of waiting for warmer weather so we are going to do what we can to warm things up. Stop by and enjoy our palm tree and “Tiki hut” (the circulation desk). From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 20, the first day of spring, for tropical punch drinks with little umbrellas and leis. While you enjoy our warm atmosphere, browse our new books and DVDs. Find something to check out that tickles your fancy and warms your heart. So what if it’s below zero? We’ve got our library to keep us warm.
After School Is Cool Tuesdays
Do you have something green to wear on St. Patrick’s Day? If not, don’t worry! Come to After School on Tuesday, March 4, and make something green to keep from getting pinched! With the help of Miss Shari, we’ll be making Leprechaun hats. Come down to the meeting room at 3:30 p.m. to join in on the craft, food and fun.
Winter Story Time
It may be March, but winter isn’t over yet, and neither is Winter Story Time! Come to this week’s story time for a magical Winter Waltz! Miss Julie will lead us in a winter ice skating dance and will read these funstories: Dancing Feet!, by Lindsey Craig and Brontorina, by James Howe. Color your own dancing shoes and learn to tie your shoelaces! With rice krispie treats and punch, we’re definitely going to have a wonderful winter waltzing time! Story time is at 10:15 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays as well as at 7 p.m. Thursdays.
