All material from Milton Public Library is checked out for two weeks.  If no one is waiting for the item, it can be renewed up to two times.  Individuals can renew their material in person, on the phone or by logging in to their account at  When renewing online your login is your full barcode and the password is defaulted to your last name all lowercase.

Item Limitations

Patrons are limited to checking out 5 DVDs at one time, there are no limits on other material.

Late Materials

Milton Public Library does not charge fines or late fees, but this model only functions well when people return their material in a reasonable time period.  Individuals with materials more than 4 weeks overdue will receive a bill for the total value of all checked out material.  At 6 weeks, items will be considered lost and Homecard status will be revoked.  Homecard status can be reinstated after the return of all material and a meeting with the Director.


The Library is only able to accept cash and check (payable to Milton Public Library) for lost items. We are unable to issue credits if the item is later found.

In some cases the patron may find a replacement copy of the lost item costing less than the amount owed to the library. Providing the replacement copy is in good condition and receives approval from the Library Director or Assistant Director, the replacement copy will be accepted in lieu of payment.
