MILFORD — The Milford Public Library will hold “The Garbage Monster” program at 6:30 p.m. Monday, April 22, in the meeting room.
Suzanne Stokes, the education outreach coordinator for Kosciusko County Solid Waste Management, will introduce kids to her friend named Garby — a trash can filled to the brim with items that aren’t all trash. She will read a book by Joni Sense. Kids will learn how Joni tames her garbage monster and talk about how everyone can tame their own at home by learning about recyclable materials. Children then help sort through Garby to determine what items are recyclable and what you can do to make less trash. Join the library for this free program.
Milford Public Library has been in the same building for 100 years. A date has been set for the celebration of the library’s 100th anniversary. On June 28, a variety of activities will take place at the library and the library staff will be dressed in costumes of that time. Look in local papers or the library newsletter for the upcoming series of articles detailing how the Milford Public Library became a Carnegie library.
