MILFORD — The fourth week of the Summer Reading Program at Milford Public Library begins June 27. There are lots of activities, crafts, and new books, audiobooks, digital books and finally, in-person Family Story Times are back and will be held at 10:30 a.m. every Friday.
The library has a great line-up of storytellers this year who are excited to share ocean themed stories with you. Join the staff and others outside as weather permits, or inside in the library’s meeting room. The guest storyteller for July 1 will be Dorothy Haney and the theme is Water, Water, Everywhere.
Families who stay for the entire event this week will be given a copy of “Big Beautiful Ocean: A Photographic Exploration,” by Kidsbooks Publishing – so plan on staying until the very end.
Make sure to mark your calendars for the Summer Reading grand finale party which is a FOAM-ZILLA soapy fun event and pizza party beginning at noon Friday, July 22. The events are free for all Summer Reading Program participants, and you can earn a picnic ticket for the pizza party by reading five hours. You will not want to miss these exciting events that will be happening live at the library.
