MILFORD — Crafts, reading clubs, new books and more available at Milford Public Library:
Adult Craft Night
Local crafter, Kelly Engle, will show us how to make a snowman craft. Join us at 6 p.m. Monday, Jan. 11 and enjoy a relaxing, informal evening with other people who enjoy making crafts. The cost for this craft is $16 and is due when you register.
The sign-up sheet is available at the adult circulation desk. If you would like to participate, we need to know by 4 p.m. Friday, Jan. 8, so the correct amount of materials can be purchased. An example of the snowman is on display now at the adult circulation desk and he’s a real cutie. Call (574) 658-4312 to register, or stop by the library before 4 p.m. Jan. 8.
Adult Reading Club
Adults ages 18 and up can register to participate in our annual Adult Reading Program. This year’s theme is, “Exercise Your Mind. Read!” Stop by the adult circulation desk for program information.
For each book you read, or book-on-compact disk you listen to, you can put your name in for a chance to win some fabulous prizes. The books can be from the library or ones you have purchased privately, but please read material that is new to you.
Each Friday, the library will draw a name out of the bowl, and that person will win a prize. Prizes are donated by local sponsors and will be displayed prior to being given away. After a name has been selected, the remaining names in the bowl will be removed, and we will start fresh to add names for the next week’s drawing. Names we have removed will be kept, and on the last day of the program, we will select one person from all participants to be a grand prize winner! We will also have some programs for adults during the winter months.
The Adult Reading Program ends on March 31. We are going to read all winter anyway, why not read to win? Reading keeps the mind in great shape, so sign up to participate today.
Dial-A-Story For Children
Children love to use Dial-A-Story. By calling (574) 658-9540, children can listen to a story over the phone. The story is changed weekly, so there is always something new to listen to! Help your child dial today.
Friends Of The Library News
Do you have lots of books or magazines laying around the house, gathering dust? Why not donate them to the library for others to buy and read. The Friends of the Library welcomes all your donations of books, CDs, DVDs, magazines, and sheet music.
Feel free to go through our collection and purchase a few things as well. Each book/cd costs 50 cents. All proceeds go back to the library. The friends are also selling cloth book bags for $12. Come in and purchase a bag at the circulation desk upstairs and support your local library.

Come in and check out our magazines and new CDs such as “Now That’s What I Call Music 56,” “Kidz Bop 30” and “Straight No Chaser’s The New Old Fashioned.”
New DVD’s hitting the shelf are “The Martian,” “The Intern,” “Faith of our Fathers,” and “Far and Away.”
