Milford Library has many interesting events planned for January

The Milford Public Library has a busy January planned with several events offered that can help you get organized, learn a new skill or educate yourself. The month began with Painting with CAT on January 6 from 10 AM to 1 PM. Those who attended were able to paint a beautiful snow scene to decorate their home or give as a gift.

“On Thursday, January 11 from 2 to 4 PM, we will offer “Downsizing? EEK!” which will offer tips on how to streamline your life,” Carolyn Tabor, Program Manager for the library said. “Maybe you are getting ready to move or are dealing with the belongings of a parent or relative. You can gain many tips about how to approach these daunting tasks at this fun program.”

As part of the downsizing program, attendees will learn whether it is best to do it themselves, pair up with a friend or hire a professional. The program will also explain what papers need to be kept, what can be recycled and those that are recommended for shredding due to security issues.

“We are also offering public NARCAN training on Friday, January 12 from 10 to Noon,” Tabor said. “This training could help you save a life and is offered free of charge to anyone who wants to attend.”

The Milford Museum will continue their American History Series on Saturday, January 13 from 1 to 2 PM, providing details on the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Reverend Dr. John G. Moore, Sr., will provide insight into Dr. King’s fight for civil rights as well as his tragic death. Rev. Dr. Moore will also reenact three of Dr. King’s most famous speeches, “We Shall Overcome,” “I Have a Dream,” and “The Mountain Top.” The American History Series is provided through a grant from The Delaware Heritage Commission.

“We are excited to present “Breakfast with Badges” on January 17 at 9 AM in the Lions Room A,” Tabor said. “Come join Chief Cecilia “Cece” Ashe and members of the Milford Police Department for breakfast. Food, coffee and fun is all included. Chief Ashe will be available to answer any questions you may have regarding safety in Milford.”

On January 16, Ms. Robin will offer a Valentine Craft at the library from 2 to 4 PM. All supplies are provided to make a beautiful card for someone special. On January 27 from 11 to Noon, “Removing the Stigma of Substance Use Disorder and Addiction” will be offered, providing information on how stigma can negatively impact recovery. The program is provided by Delaware’s Department of Health and Social Services with details on how to recognize risk factors regarding substance abuse, how addiction impacts personality and social interactions as well as learn more about the shame an addict feels related to how their illness impacts friends and family.
