MILTON MILLS - While it is still winter, the days are getting longer and the extra sunshine is SO nice. We hope you're staying warm inside reading, listening to books, and enjoying all your favorite wintertime activities. If the snowy picture looks familiar, it is the fields at Branch Hill Farm taken from Applebee Road. We're lucky to have this lovely view right in our backyards
We're excited to introduce our patrons to wonderful author series this month. Come in for a new book series. Hopefully you will see a few old familiars and a new series to spark your interest!
We have a busy schedule of events planned at Milton Free Public Library for the month of February.
Thursday, February 15 High School Fan Fic entries are due by 7:30 p.m. at the library. We can't wait to see what the creative Milton students have been working on.
We have a festive Children's Valentine's Craft day on Saturday, February 10 during normal operating hours, 10am to 1pm for all ages to enjoy and we hope you'll join us in celebrating and appreciating our loved ones with a themed activity.
On Saturday, February 17 from 10am to 11:30am we will be hosting the Moose Mountain Seed Savers and their Winter Seed Sowing Event. Perennial seeds and a milk jug planter will be provided FREE to all attendees. From the Moose Mountain Seed Savers: "Winter sowing is a seed-starting technique where seeds of certain perennial vegetables, flowers and herbs are started outdoors in containers in late autumn or winter. The cold weather stratifies the seeds and prompts germination when the time is right. Many native perennials require stratification, as the treatment uses temperature and moisture to soften the seed coat and break the seed dormancy. Winter sowing is an easy technique and results in healthy, strong seedlings." Please join us for this interesting and informative event!
We also have Children's Story Time every Thursday at 10am, weather permitting and the upstairs playroom is always available during library hours. Please check Facebook for weather delays or closures.
