Press Release from the NMPL Board of Trustees

As a brief summary of recent events, the Board of Trustees of NMPL have issued the following Press Release:
The New Milford Public Library is experiencing challenging times with the COVID 19 concerns, major construction, downsizing of facility and offerings, and the sudden resignation of our Director due to family illness and moving out of state.

The NMPL Board of Trustees has been forced to make difficult decisions. With reduced services and offerings we were forced, with regret, to reduce the number of employees at this time.

The NMPL is continuing to serve the public with reduced services. The day to day operation of the library is managed by our three supervisors, Peggy Ganong, Valerie Fisher and Sue Ford, in cooperation with the Board of Trustees. The search process for a new director is underway with Trustee Jolene Mullen chairing the search committee. The search committee will share on-going information with the community.

Please contact the NMPL by phone at 860-355-1191 or view our website at for our program offerings and services which will be constantly updated. We are all looking forward to the GRAND reopening.
