While We're Closed...


Milan Public Library Materials

You will NOT be charged fines for items you currently have checked out during the time we are closed. You can renew items online here for items from our library

In accordance with Gov. Whitmer's directive of 3/23/20 which establishes that workers whose work is not necessary to sustain or protect life should stay at home except for necessary trips such as groceries, pharmacies, etc.  PLEASE DO NOT RETURN ITEMS TO THE LIBRARY'S DROP BOX UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE!

We want you all to be safe and we want to keep materials from accumulating in the drop box when we don't have the capacity to retrieve them.

 If you have books on reserve that are currently being held for you, we will continue to hold them for one week after we reopen.

MEL Loans

Click here for items from MeLCat, but don’t worry about items that can’t be renewed. We will backdate returns when we reopen (and for one week after), so fines will not be applied for the time we are closed.

If you had a MeLCat request that had not arrived at our library yet, the request has been canceled as required by MEL.  New requests may not be placed at this time. We will provide updates on our website as we have them. 

Other Resources

While we are closed, you can still access the following online options:

  • Check out Overdrive eBooks and eAudiobooks from our membership in the Woodlands Library Cooperative here. You can also access Overdrive titles or by downloading the Libby app here for your mobile devices.
  • The Michigan Electronic Library (MEL) offers other online learning and research options, youth activities, ACT/SAT test-prep, etc.  See all MeL eResources here and options specifically for children here

Keeping You Up to Date

We will post updates and additional information on our website, milanlibrary.org  and social media accounts: primarily Facebook and additionally Instagram and Twitter.  

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@milanlibrary.org.
