Milford's Little Libraries open for summer

MILFORD — As warm weather returns, The Friends of the Milford Library (FOML) has announced that the city’s “Little Libraries” are once again open for the season.

The Friends operate three separate locations - The Firehouse Art Gallery Little Library (81 Naugatuck Ave., Walnut Beach); Gulf Beach Little Library (Gulf Street); and Milford YMCA Little Library (631 Orange Ave., located off the parking lot, near the ball fields)

“We love our Little Libraries, which follow the simple concept of ‘take a book, leave a book,’” said Pam Pilla, FOML President. “This simple act — of 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 asks users to remember, when leaving a book, that space is limited, and no books are to be left outside the Little Library box. Excess books can be donated at the library. Additionally, these Little Libraries are for books only.

“A special thanks to our volunteer stewards, who monitor our Little Libraries to ensure they are well-stocked and maintained,” said Pilla. “We couldn’t do it without them.”
