How Do I Give A Memorial Or Commemorative Gift
A gift to the library can either be given “in memoriam” or to commemorate an occasion, a birthday, anniversary or other milestone. Library staff will send an acknowledgement to the donor and to the person (or the family of the person) being honored. A bookplate will be inscribed with the name of the honoree and the donor and placed inside an item. Simply fill out the form and send in or stop in and drop off.  
How Do I Pay A Fine
The Library is now Fine Free!   Material returned to the Library does not incur daily overdue fines.  Items that are not returned will be charged the full replacement cost upon reaching lost status.  Items that are severely damaged will be charged the full replacement cost.  
How Do I Put An Item On Hold
You can call the library to place a hold or use the online libary catalog to place a hold yourself.

To contact the library, call the library at (248) 684-0845 and choose either the Adult Services desk or the Youth and Teen Services desk from the automated menu and we will be happy to place the hold for you.

Or you may place a hold yourself by following the steps below:

Find the item for which you want to place a hold.
Click on the Details of that item.
Click on Place Hold.
Type in your library card number (no spaces or dashes)
Type in your Personal Identification Number (PIN). If you haven't changed your PIN it is either 1234 or the last four digits of your phone number.   Check with library staff if you're not sure what your pin is.
Choose the library at which you'd like to pickup the item.
Click on Place Hold.
Depending on your preference, you will receive a phone call, an email, or a text message when the item is waiting for you.  Items can only be held for 4 days before they are returned to the owning library and/or made available for other library patrons. If you are concerned that your hold will be filled when you are on vacation, you can suspend it via My Account in the catalog.
How Do I Donate Books And Other Materials
Gifts of books, books on CD, music CDs and other materials are accepted by the library on a conditional basis. Materials should be published within the last five years, clean, undamaged, and free of odors and mildew. The library cannot accept donations of textbooks, back issues of magazines, newspapers, Reader's Digest condensed books, records, or musical cassette tapes. Donated materials may be added to the collection or forwarded to the Friends of the Library for the "Friendly Finds" Bookstore. Items not suitable for the library's collection or for the bookstore may be discarded, recycled, or donated to other organizations.
How do I renew library materials

Materials owned by the Milford Public Library may be renewed twice unless the item has been reserved by another patron. Items may be renewed in one of five ways:

  • Auto renewal if eligible (items renewed the maximum number of times or with a hold will not auto renew)
  • In person at the Circulation Desk.
  • By telephone call to the Circulation Department.
  • By automated phone renewal at 888-672-8983.
