Borrow and Renew

Borrow and Renew

While the library is closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the library catalog is set to automatically renew items.  If an error occurs, and you receive an automated overdue email notice, please disregard it.  You may keep all checked-out materials until the library reopens to the public.  We do not know when that will be.  There are no fines.  If you wish, you may return your items to the outdoor book drop, at the back of the library building.  Thank you.


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 the complete number on your library card, and your password is your last name, all lowercase.

Please note:  We do not renew items by email, because we do not have staff monitoring email at all times.  Thank you for your understanding.

Teacher cards allow one check out period of six weeks, with no renewals.

Item Limitations

Patrons are limited to five DVDs at one time. Teacher cards are limited to three items from one subject area at a 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 four weeks overdue will receive a bill for the total value of all checked out material. At eight weeks overdue, items will be considered lost and the patron’s card will be restricted.  At 10 weeks overdue, Homecard status will be revoked. Homecard status can be reinstated after the return of all materials, pending a meeting with and permission from the director.


The library accepts cash and check payment for lost or damaged items. We do not accept credit cards. Check should be made payable to Milton Public Library. If the lost item is later found, we cannot issue a credit.

We no longer accept replacement copies for a lost or damaged item.
