MILFORD — Look for some friendly, out-of-this-world aliens in the Milford Memorial Day parade.
The staff of Milford Public Library will be dressing up and walking in the parade to promote 2019’s summer reading program “A Universe of Stories.”
Summer Reading Program
Milford Public Library’s annual summer reading program is starting up again. Sign-up starts June 3. This summer there will be family story times, special events and fun contests. We have some terrific reading incentives you can earn by reading and doing the activities on a bingo sheet. Every week one bingo gets you a prize. Registration cards will be available in both departments at the circulation desk.
The library’s first event is for the whole family. Join the library for a space festival from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 5, in the library’s parking lot. There will be a space bouncy house, games to play and out-of-this-world snacks. Each child will be given 10 tickets to “spend” at the different booths. Let’s hope for great weather and have a great time at the library.
