Bibliomation News

The Milford Public Library is now a member of the Bibliomation Library consortium. With one search, users can search the catalogs of over 60 libraries and request materials for pick-up in Milford. Users can manage their accounts online - select how you would like to receive notifications (email, phone, text), create personal booklists and search preferences, keep a history of checked out titles and more! As part of the move we have switched over our e-book provider to Overdrive, offering an increased number of titles with an easy-to-use platform.If you have any questions or need any help using our new system, please call 203-783-3292 or 203-783-3312. Our staff is happy to help you and appreciates your patience during our switch!

Frequently asked questions:
I don't have a PIN, how do I log in to my account? The first time you log-in, the PIN should default to the last four digits of your primary phone. If you are having trouble, call the LIbrary for assistance in re-setting the PIN.
I am getting so many notices now -why? If you have signed up for email notifications, you should receive a pre-overdue notice 3 days before your item(s) become due, 2 late notices, and a final bill if your item has not been returned.These notices will come from Biblio.org, so please check your SPAM email folder if you have not received any. If you have a Library Elf account, you will also receive notices from libraryelf.com. Library Elf is a separate, add-on  service.
