Library Cards

Pennsylvania residents can sign up for a free library card by providing a form of government ID with current proof of address. Anyone living outside the state of Pennsylvania is asked to pay a $15 annual non-resident fee (with the exception of students in Milton Schools). Acceptable forms of ID include a Driver's License, State Photo ID card, Military ID card and Passport.


Circulating materials have a loan period of 14 days and can be renewed two times. New adult books have a loan period of 7 days. If an item is on hold for another patron, it cannot be renewed.


A total of 3 DVDs may be taken out at one time for a loan period of 7 days. DVDs cannot be put on hold. Patrons aged 10-17 require the permission of a parent or legal guardian to borrow DVDs.

Drop Boxes

Materials can be returned respectively in the book drop or DVD drop boxes. If items are put in a box before or after the library is open by the given due date, they are considered to be on time.

Overdue Fees

Fines are $0.25 per day per book, $1.00 per day for DVDs. Inter-library Loans (ILL) are $1.00 per day per book. To avoid fines, materials must be returned by the due date given upon checkout. Items can be renewed online or by phone.


Computers are available for public use with a valid Milton Public Library card. All patrons between the ages of 10 and 17 must have prior parental permission to use our computers and internet. WiFi is available for guests to use their own electronic devices.
