MILFORD — The Milford Public Library offers many services you might not realize. Consider these:
Zumba Fitness: Complete Total Body Transformation System
Didn’t quite get in shape for summer? No problem! Did you know that the library has a fitness workout available for checkout?! The Zumba fitness kit was donated by Harvest with a Heart and includes: 2 shaker sticks, a booklet with exercises, and a total of 4 instructional DVD’s targeted for specific areas. You may check out the kit for one week at a time. It is shelved behind the adult circulation desk so please ask a clerk if you’d like to try it out!
Enjoy reading, but short on time? Check out our catalog of audiobooks available for children, big kids, teens, and adults. Many of the children’s audiobooks come with an accompanying book that you and your child(ren) can read along with the audio. Audiobooks are a great option when you are doing other things such as driving, cooking, waiting for an appointment, or listening to before bed. Stop by the library and ask one of our staff what they’d recommend. We would love to help you out!
Instead of subscribing to a magazine, borrow one from the library. If you want to stay up to date on all your favorite magazines from recipes and home décor to animals, but don’t want to have old magazines lying around or pay for several subscriptions, borrow one from the library. We offer many titles in both the adult and children’s departments and they’re available to check out for a week with a one-week renewal. You can enjoy your favorite magazines for a total of two weeks. Digital magazines are also available for download from Libby/OverDrive.
Attention teachers and homeschoolers! Did you know the library can laminate your classroom materials for you? We offer laminating services to the community for a small fee. We can laminate items up to 24” wide, and multiple smaller items at the same time. This is perfect for protecting educational posters or signs. It is a $1.00 start fee and .05 cents per inch (at widest point) additional to laminate materials. If you have lots of items, don’t worry, leave your order with the clerks at the children’s circulation desk and you’ll be notified when items are available for pickup and total amount you owe. Please remember, payments must be taken care of at the adult circulation desk and must be in the form of cash or check. Other services we offer include color/b&w copies, faxing, printing, and free Wi-Fi/internet usage. No library card needed.

We have extra craft materials set up on a table in the children’s department. Patrons are welcome to take materials home to enjoy!!! These materials are free and available until supplies last. No library card is needed for these services.
