Fun historical fact about the New Milford CT library. The very first library in New Milford, CT was established in 1796 and had 350 volumes. The library was housed in the homes of “public spirited citizens” and was only open 5 days per year. It was called “Union Library”. (I wonder what the fees were for overdue books if they were only open 5 days per year, or did they have drop boxes?)

Help yourself, help the New Milford Public Library in New Milford Connecticut and donate those old books, VHS tapes and more!
