Sister Library Pen Pal Program

For the first time ever, Milton Public Library has partnered up with Marjorie Mews Public Library in St. John's Newfoundland, for a fun pen pal program this summer!
Children are invited to stop by the mailing station at either library location, to write letters or draw pictures to send to children at Marjorie Mews Library in Newfoundland.
Make sure to check our bulletin boards and social media channels to see what our pen pals are sending back to us!

Flat Stanley Project

Children of all ages are invited to join us for a special program at either library location.  We'll read the book Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown, raffle off a copy and then children will decorate their own Flat Stanley to take home.
