Milford Public Library to open 6 days a week June 1st

May 2021

The Milford Public Library will open on Tuesday, June 1, 2021 offering all services 6 days a week.  All services will be based on CDC guidelines and any restrictions announced by Governor Carney’s office, scheduled to take effect on Friday, May 21, 2021.

We will be extending our current open hours to Monday and Friday 10:00-6:00, Tuesdays and Thursday 10:00-7:00, noon to 6:00 on Wednesday and 10:00-2:00 on Saturday. Still want to use curbside? Curbside will be available from 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

Library director, Ella Wilkerson says, “We are thrilled to announce that we are going to be open 6 days a week, while still providing curbside service to anyone who wishes to utilize it. We will be opening all spaces including our study and meeting rooms. We look forward to patrons perusing the newspapers and enjoying their library once again.”

Beginning on May 21, 2021 the library will also make available all study rooms for public use on a walk-in basis as space allows. Limited leisure seating will also be available for the general public.

Also available on June 1, 2021 will be the library’s meeting rooms for community use. Capacity restrictions will be dependent on the most current information provided by the CDC and their recommendations on social distancing.

The library will once again be offering our Summer Reading Program Challenge which runs from June 1 to August 14, and our ever popular Music in the Park returns on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. beginning June 30 through July 28.

Other programming will be a combination of online, in-person and hybrid programs, and classes.

Please visit the library’s website at Milford.lib.de.us, or connect with us on social media on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more information.

In compliance with current restrictions face masks are no longer required for vaccinated adults. However, the Library urges the public to act in their own best interest. Those with immunocompromised systems should take the safety precautions that will best protect them from COVID-19. We do ask that children 12 and under continue to wear masks, due to the fact that no current vaccine is available for that age group.
