Milford’s Little Libraries open for summer


As the warm weather returns, the Friends of Milford Library (FOML) have announced that Milford’s ‘little libraries’ are open again for the season.

“We love our small libraries, which follow the simple concept of ‘take a book, leave a book,'” said Pam Pilla, president of FOML. “This simple gesture – giving and receiving – helps build community spirit and ensures that good books are enjoyed by more people. Get ready to find your next beach read!

FOML uses three small libraries:

  • Small Library at Firehouse Art Gallery (81 Naugatuck Avenue, Walnut Beach)

  • Little Gulf Beach Library (Gulf Street)

  • Milford YMCA Little Library (631 Orange Avenue, located next to the parking lot, near the ball fields)

FOML asked participants to remember when leaving a book that space is limited and no book should be left outside the small library box. Surplus books can be donated to the library. In addition, these small libraries are reserved for books. If you are looking to donate food, toys and other goods, there are other places to do so around Milford.

“Special thanks to our volunteer stewards, who watch over our small libraries to ensure they are well stocked and maintained,” Pilla said. “We couldn’t do it without them.”
