Milford Public Library


Notice on Reserving items:
As many have noticed, and has been widely reported, the state sponsored delivery system which facilitates the transport of materials between libraries is not operating as quickly as it once did.  This is due to state budget cuts. The CT State Library is asking ALL libraries to respect the following guidelines:
1.  Libraries shall limit patron placed holds on materials not owned by their library to 5 simultaneous holds.
2. New materials (acquired within the previous 6 months) will not be delivered by deliverIT CT.
We apologize for any inconvenience and be assured that both the state library and the Bibliomation consortium are investigating options for improved service.
