The Book Return has been closed:  Due dates on all items has been extended.  Items returned prior to the book return being locked may still be on your account as we are not discharging those items yet.  

If you don't have a library card, you can apply for an instant digital card by clicking here.  You'll receive a card number and PIN via the email address you used to sign up.  That card number can be used for digital resources offered by the library.  Once the library can re-open, we'll ask that you come into the library to verify your address. 

Library cards that expired in the last 6 months OR were due to expire in the next 6 months were renewed for a one-year period.  If you have questions about your library card or PIN, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We've added a couple of WiFi hotspots to the library so that coverage is available in the parking lots.  Note:  Coverage is better in the South parking lot.  WiFi is available 24/7.

Additional e-content has been purchased (limited to Milford card holders) for Overdrive and the Hoopla limitations have been increased.

Programs and use of the meeting rooms have been cancelled through the end of April.  We expect that further cancellations will need to take place.

Information about the August 4, 2020 Library Millage Proposition

What is the proposal on the ballot on August 4, 2020?
This millage, for a total of 0.7 mills, replaces a 0.3675 mills levy that expired at the end of 2019 and asks for a modest increase of 0.3325 for a period of 10 years.  It is expected that this millage, if approved, would raise approximately $699,000 in the first year of the millage. 

Why is the Library asking for this millage?
To continue providing quality library services to the entire community, including:

  • Expanded hours of operation
  • Additional programming for all ages
  • Additional material in a variety of formats (including more e-content)
  • Up-to-date technology

To make necessary repairs and improvements to the nearly 20 year old library facility:

  • Painting
  • Carpet replacement
  • Furniture repair and replacement
  • Parking lot repairs
  • Carpet Replacement

What will happen if the millage is not approved?
If the millage is not approved, the Library budget will be reduced by appoximately 33%.  This will require necessary cuts in staffing, operating hours, programming, and materials (including e-content reductions).  

What will the millage cost homeowners in 2021?
Due to the Library/Police bond expiring, the cost of the millage in 2021 would be less than in 2020. An example: For a home with a taxable value of $100,000, the current millages and library portion of the bond would cost about $161 annually. With approval of this millage and expiration of the bond, the cost would be approximately $144 annually.
