Milton Public Library (copy)

A patron picks up a bag of books curbside at the Milton Public Library June 23, 2020. The library will soon allow patrons to browse for books inside three days a week. 

MILTON — Beginning Thursday, July 8, no appointment will be necessary to visit the Milton Public Library for 30 minute intervals.

In-person browsing will be offered on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Curbside service will remain available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

This change is another forward step on the library's path to reopening, which began on June 1 with browsing appointments.

The library is also rebounding after more than a year of closure with in-person summer programming like gardening, outdoor story times, adult book discussions and a magic show.

According to the library website, staff asks patrons visiting the building to continue to practice social distancing and wear a face mask in order to protect those members of our community who have not yet received, or are not yet eligible for the vaccine.

Enter the library through the municipal office lobby in the front of the building. Visitors will need to sign in at the front desk and use hand sanitizer. Curbside pickup for these days will be available inside the library through the front door.
