MILFORD — The following events are set to happen at the Milford Public Library:
The library will close at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 9, for a staff in-service. The library staff takes time every quarter to receive training so that we can better serve our community. We apologize for the inconvenience but hope that you will utilize our drop boxes on the south end of the building to return any items after hours. We will reopen at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10.
Back To School
The first day of school is just around the corner. Classes at Wawasee Community Schools will begin Thursday, Aug. 11. A major transformation is occurring this year for students at Wawasee. At the beginning of the school year each student will receive either an iPad or a laptop computer, which means for many of the classes, textbooks will no longer be used. The Milford Public Library wants all students to know the library is here to help in any way we can to make their school year a successful one. The staff is here to assist students with research questions, special projects or just a quiet place to come and study. We also have free WIFI and public access computers available for students to use. The library also encourages all students to get a library card so they can take advantage of all the services and material available at the library. It only takes a few minutes to get signed up for your free Evergreen Library Card, so stop by and get your card today.
