Summer Food and Fun

It is July, and high temperatures, backyard parties, beach trips and summer vacations have arrived.  If you are looking for something fun to do this summer, something to keep the children entertained, fun food for summer events, or great summer reads, MPHPL can help.  Please take a look at our recommendations below.

Happy Father's Day!

Father’s Day.  A day where we honor the Father Figures in our lives.  A day where we break out the grill, give neck ties and shop-vacs, and tell “dad-jokes”.

For example: “Why couldn't the bike stand up by itself? It was two tired!”

Nice one, Dad.
