MILFORD— September is national library card sign-up month. To celebrate, the library is giving away a free book tote to everyone who obtains a new library card. Patrons may choose from one of four design choices (pictured above).
Participates must be at least 6 years old and a resident of Van Buren Township or East Jefferson Township to qualify for a free library card. All that is needed is a photo ID and a piece of mail with a current address. Minors, anyone between 6 and 17, need a legal guardian’s signature and photo ID.
