  • Students of Milford schools (who are not residents of Milford) may get a card at no charge for the school year (Sept. 1 – June 30). Please bring in proof of enrollment.

Please bring proof of residency or employment when you come to get your library card. Acceptable identification includes a driver’s license with current Milford address, a utility bill with your Milford address, or a paycheck stub from a Milford employer.
