MILFORD — Milford Public Library will offer the following activities June 28-July 3.
Summer Reading Special Event
A special Summer Reading event will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 30, via Zoom. Join others for Silly Safari’s “Tales & Tales — Animals In Fairy Tales” program. Amazon John will present a 45 minute show of animals we have read about in fairy tales. Animal programs are always popular with all ages, so plan to watch the ZOOM program.

VIRTUAL STORY TIME – SOUTH AMERICA
Hola! Join the staff on Zoom at 10:30 a.m. Friday, July 2 as Miss Julia reads tales about South America. The whole family is welcome for summer Story Time. Each family who attends the Zoom session will receive a copy of “International Cooking for Kids,” while supplies last.
Each international recipe page includes: facts about the country; fun country food facts; a phrase in the country’s native language (if possible); a map of the country and flag and international recipes for children to try. Pick up a free book at the library after Story Time. The staff is excited for others to join them on ZOOM. Registration is required to receive free books. No library card needed.
