Milford Public Library celebrated National Library Week

Milford Public Library celebrated National Library Week the week of April 24 through 29. The week was filled with fun events for all ages, bringing many visitors to the library.

“This was such a fun week,” Carolyn Tabor, Program Coordinator for the library, said. “We held an “all that and a bag of chips” giveaway. For every item checked out, we gave a free bag of chips. We also had patrons fill out cards telling us why they love our library, and they were entered to win a gift card.”

Rebecca Bonawitz of PACE Your Life provided tips on how to prevent falls in your home while Irvin Cowboy performed a live concert on April 25. “The Other Side of the Tracks 2,” a video interview with Tom Summers and Charles Hammond was very well attended.

“The presentation of the film and the Q&A was a rousing success, full of valuable insights” Steve Curtis, Vice-President of the Milford Museum said. “There were at least 80 attendees at the presentation. We appreciate being part of the National Library Week.”

Although not limited to National Library Week, free line dancing lessons, held every Thursday at 6 PM through May 18, took place during the weeklong celebration. There were also random book giveaways each day.

“We appreciate everyone who came in to celebrate National Library Week with us,” Tabor said. “Keep checking our events page as we are adding new things constantly.”
