MILFORD — The Friends of the Milford Public Library are conducting a silent auction for the painting pictured above, titled “Forever By Your Side” by artist Don Sheline of Goshen. The proceeds from this painting will go to help the Friends Group support the library.
The painting is on display for viewing in the adult department of the library. Don created this remembrance of a family together in “Dad’s Garage”, but without Dad. They look at the items in the garage and remember him in their hearts and minds. This is a wonderful tribute to a lost loved one. Bids will be accepted on the painting until Saturday, Oct. 16.
Story Time (Virtual) at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 6
Join the library on ZOOM for this week’s story time, “Whoo Likes Story Time?”. Can anyone guess what the theme is about? If the guess was owls, that’s correct. And whooo doesn’t love those big eyed silent fliers? Join Miss Trisha as she reads stories about owls, their life as nocturnal animals and the things they do while people sleep.
Those in attendance will make an owl craft and have a snack together. Story time is a free program for children ages 3-6. Sign up at the children’s circulation desk today to receive the ZOOM link. Make-and-take craft packets for story time will be available for pick up at the children’s circulation desk prior to the session. No library card needed.
