MILFORD — It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas and nothing makes the holidays quite as enjoyable as sipping a hot beverage, snuggling into a comfy chair and reading a good holiday book. Take a look at the new holiday fiction that includes “The Christmas Hummingbird” by Davis Bunn; “The Twelve Topsy-Turvy, Very Messy Days of Christmas” by James Patterson and Tad Safran and “Holiday Romance” by Catherine Walsh. New adult nonfiction titles are “Christmas Ornaments” by CICO Books and “The Eco-Christmas Craft Book” by Marrianne Miall. The teen and children’s departments also have many new holiday titles to check out.
Accepting Donations For Food Pantry
From now until Dec. 30, the library is accepting donations for the Van Buren Township Food Pantry. They have a list of most requested/needed items. There are donation boxes in the adult and children’s area of the library. The Van Buren Township Food Pantry is located in Milford First Brethren Church, 110 W. Catherine St. (back alley at the gym entrance). Pantry hours are 2-5 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays.
Adult Reading Program
The annual Adult Reading Program begins Jan. 3. This year’s theme is “All Together Now.” Just sign up at the adult circulation desk and enter a weekly drawing for each book you read or audio book you listen to. Anyone age 18 or older can join the program. Stop by the library for more information.
As the weather is getting colder, there is less to do outside. And more of us are ready to curl up inside where it is warm. Of course, one indoor activity is reading a good book. But another option for a fun indoor activity is putting together puzzles.
Did you know you can borrow puzzles from the Milford Public Library for free? In the fall and winter months, the library has a collection of puzzles that can be borrowed and then returned after use. You don’t even need a library card.
Borrowing puzzles is on the honor system — if you take a puzzle, bring a puzzle back. It’s that simple. No time limit and no checkouts necessary. Just take a puzzle to enjoy and bring it back. The library is always taking puzzle donations as well, so if you’ve finished a good puzzle, give it to the library and let someone else enjoy it after you. And while you’re at it, take another puzzle for yourself. What a fantastic way to share the puzzle love.
