Reindeer Visit Library
Wednesday, Dec. 17, we will be hosting some very special visitors. Artic Angie, the elf, and her reindeer, Olaf, will be at Milford Public Library. Come to our meeting room at 6:30 p.m. and listen to Artic Angie tell us about life at the North Pole and introduce us to some of Santa’s Animal Neighbors.
After their presentation, children may line up to meet Olaf and get a photo with him. Since we have the appearance of Olaf, the library will remain open until 8 p.m. Dec. 17, so everyone will get the chance to come. We hope you will make time to attend. Kids will receive a treat from Santa provided by Friends of Milford Public Library. See you then.
After School Is Cool
Come to After School is Cool at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16, for Christmas Bingo with Miss Shari. Bring your friends and family. Bingo winners get a candy bar prize. Remember that each After School is Cool you attend earns you 10 points. When you have 40 points, you can choose a paperback book to add to your home library. See you on Tuesday, Dec. 16 for After School is Cool.
Knitting Club is meeting from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 19 in the teen area of the library. Bring a knitting project and get help from experienced knitters. Even if you’ve never picked up a pair of knitting needles before, you’ll find plenty of help to get you started. The knitting club meets on the first and third Friday of every month. Come and learn how to make a new project.
Make and Take Craft
Most schools let out on Dec. 19 for Christmas Break. The very next week, Milford Public Library will have crafts available to make. These crafts are for children of all ages.
From Dec. 22 till the 27, we will have crafts that you can come in and make anytime during our open hours down in the Children Department.
On Monday, Dec. 22, come and make a snowman reading bookmark. On Tuesday, Dec. 23, come and make a picture frame to give to someone special. On Friday, Dec. 26, come and design a cup with a straw for yourself or a family member. On Saturday, Dec. 27, come make a sun catcher for your window. If you miss a weekday, you can drop by on Saturday when all the leftover crafts will be available for you to make. Happy holidays.
Be thoroughly entertained during the holidays this season with movies and music CD’s from the library. We’ve been helping Santa this year by delivering new titles to the library, including music releases by artists such as Darius Rucker, whose album “Home for the Holidays” has all your favorite Christmas classics and new group sensation Pentatonix with their new CD, “That’s Christmas To Me.”
In the Children’s Department, look for Capital Kids! “Christmas,” a great selection of tunes for the kids.
The library has several new and classic DVDs to choose from, including “Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas” and “Northpole” in the Children’s Department; and for the kid in all of us, why not check out some of these great movies in the Adult Department, including Albert Finney’s “Scrooge,” “National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation,” or Disney’s “A Christmas Carol” with Jim Carrey.
If you’re looking for something new this year, check out “A Very Funny Christmas” or “The Christmas Candle,” which is based on a Max Lucado book.
