MILFORD — Milford Public Library will be hosting various activities during the next week.
To promote our cake pan collection, we have declared June 28 Cake Day! The library has more than 30 different cake pans that can be checked out for three weeks. If you have a special occasion coming up, or just want to make a beautiful cake, take a look at our collection in the adult department. Join us for a delicious piece of cake baked and decorated by Shari Lambert. Miss Shari will make a Book cake for our Summer Reading Program promoting reading for all ages. We will serve cake until it’s all gone, so plan to stop by and make your day sweeter!
Mike Hemmelgarn: Ventriloquist and Juggler
Can you juggle three bowling balls at once? Well Mike Hemmelgarn, juggler and ventriloquist, can and will be here on Wednesday, at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 29 at the Milford Community Building. His fun-filled educational thrill ride presentation teaches kids three main points: Reading is really FUN!, Reading makes your mind and imagination GROW!, and Reading can make your DREAMS come true! This program will be fun for the whole family. At the end of the program we will draw for door prizes.
