MILFORD — The following events will take place at the Milford Public Library:
WINTER STORYTIME BEGINS THIS FEBRUARY
Story time returns Wednesday, Feb. 1, with stories, crafts and snacks for preschool-aged children. Join Miss Julie to learn about staying warm this winter with the library’s “warm and fuzzy” story time session. Story time is held at 10:15 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. on Wednesdays, or 7 p.m. on Thursdays. This free program will help children understand the written word and the world they live in while having fun. Parents get to spend quality time with their children without any preparation. Families have the opportunity to explore the library as a free resource for life-long learning.
GAIN ACCESS TO THOUSANDS OF TITLES THROUGH OVERDRIVE
OverDrive has thousands of eBooks to download to your device and it’s all free to Milford Public Library patrons.

The library is closing at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, for a staff in-service. Please return your materials to the book or DVD drops on the south side of the building. The library will reopen at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 8. The library apologizes for any inconvenience.
Children ages five and up are invited to attend the next LEGO Crew from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 11. Families are encouraged to come and have a great time building all kinds of things with the library’s LEGO building blocks. LEGO Crew meets the second Saturday of every month, so please join the group and discover the benefits of sharing time with your child at the library in a fun and creative way.
TEEN BOOK CLUB MEETING
The next meeting of the teen book club is at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11. Join the discussion to choose the library’s next book. There are so many great titles to choose from, your input is needed. Enjoy free refreshments and good conversation with friends.
Kaitlyn Arford, children’s and adults services clerk, recommends the Smithsonian’s Wildlife of the World, for its photographs and facts on animals both well-known and little heard of. This is a great book for children and teens to use for research projects or to just learn more about creatures of different continents. Wildlife of the World is shelved in the new adult nonfiction section under 591 Amb.
