MILFORD — The Teens’ Top Ten is a teen-choice list where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year. Nominators are members of teen book groups in 15 school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on the Thursday of National Library Week and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages 12-18 will vote online until Oct. 15 on the Teens’ Top Ten site, ala.org/yalsa/teenstopten. All 25 books are available at the Milford Public Library and are currently on display in front of the teen department.

Fall Story Time Begins
Story time is an excellent time to introduce your preschool child to the love of reading. Visiting the library is a good habit to develop. Children ages 3-6 are invited to come and listen to great stories, make fun crafts and enjoy delicious, nutritious snacks. They will meet new friends and experience the fun of listening to stories that are varied in their characters, cultures and adventures. Story time is held at 10:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays. Register in the children’s department today. Spread the word among friends and family.
