Milford's Little Libraries Open for Summer

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

“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 operates three Little Libraries:

  • The Firehouse Art Gallery Little Library (81 Naugatuck Avenue, Walnut Beach) 

  • Gulf Beach Little Library (Gulf Street)

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

FOML asked participants 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. If you are looking to donate food, toys, and other goods there are other locations to do so around Milford.

“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.”

The Friends of the Milford Public Library is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 volunteer organization. All proceeds raised by the Friends are used to fund children and adult programs, museum passes, and expenses not covered by the Milford city budget. Visit for more information about the organization.
