10:30 AM until 12:00 PM


Read to a DOG? Not just any dog….

Certified Therapy Pets are a wonderful way to encourage reluctant readers and children having difficulties with reading to become more confident in their ability to read.

For those children who cannot yet read on their own, parents & caregivers are invited to read with their children. In order to guarantee your spot, you must register for each session.

Registered children should arrive during the advertised time span and will read to the dog of their choice for approximately 15-20 mins.

Check our online calendar for upcoming dates & times.

Are you looking for other yarn addicts? Do your Monday nights seem dull? Look no further! Join us for a drop-in stitch-fest on the 1st Monday of each month.  Bring your project in & be inspired; if you’re a beginner, your local craft store can help you select a project & requisite supplies.

Becoming Wolf: Coyotes in Eastern New England

Thursday April 21, 2016
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM at Milford Town Hall

The proggreatsquamram focuses on the eastern coyote’s ecology and behavior and how hunting may actually be a more rapid evolution toward wolf!

Beginning in the early 1990’s, Chris Schadler taught Conservation Issues, Dendrology and Wolf Ecology at the University of New Hampshire, receiving many teaching excellence and student recognition awards.  She continues to instruct and mentor adult degree candidates in the UNH System at Granite State College.

While wolf recovery was the focus of her early work, Chris’ attention shifted to the Eastern coyote when she moved to New England.  She chose a farm with coyote problems to see if she could raise sheep and train her border collies.  Using sound livestock management and common sense, she avoided any predation for over two decades.

Location: Milford Town Hall Banquet Room. Please use the entrance on Middle Street and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.

Morning Book Group

Thursday April 14, 2016
10:00 AM until 11:15 AM

Our selection this month is Euphoria by Lily King.

“English anthroJacketpologist Andrew Banson has been alone in the field for several years, studying the Kiona river tribe in the Territory of New Guinea. Haunted by the memory of his brothers’ deaths and increasingly frustrated and isolated by his research, Bankson is on the verge of suicide when a chance encounter with colleagues, the controversial Nell Stone and her wry and mercurial Australian husband, Fen, pulls him back from the brink.”            Publisher Description

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers welcome.
