EBooks, eAudioBooks, & eMagazines

The Library subscribes to two e-content vendors, Overdrive & rbDigital. Both offer eBooks and eAudiobooks.  RB Digital also offers emagazines, which do not need to be returned and can be kept on your device until you delete the file. These two services are available to Milford Public Library cardholders.  *NOTE*  In response to added demand for e-content, we will be adding more open source resources to this page, so check back often! Please call our Reference staff at 203-783-3292 if you need any assistance!
