The titles at are constantly being updated. According to an online service Wowbrary.com, which compiles lists of new titles at public libraries, Milford now has the following:

1.Steve Jobs, By Walter Isaacson. From Simon & Schuster.

“Based on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years — as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues — Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing."

2. Boomerang: Travels in the New Third World, By Michael Lewis. From  W. W. Norton & Company.

"The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge. Michael Lewis's investigation of bubbles beyond our shores is so brilliantly, sadly hilarious that it leads the American reader to a comfortable complacency: oh, those foolish foreigners. But when he turns a merciless eye on California and Washington, DC, we see that the narrative is a trap baited with humor, and we understand the reckoning that awaits the greatest and greediest of debtor nations."

3. The Snow Angel, By Glenn Beck. From Threshold Editions.

"A heartwarming novel from popular radio and television host, and #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Christmas Sweater.

4. The Affair: A Reacher Novel (Jack Reacher), By Lee Child.  From Delacorte Press.

"Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A lonely railroad track. A crime scene. A coverup. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington."

5. The Price of Civilization: Reawakening American Virtue and Prosperity, By Jeffrey Sachs. From Random House.

"For the first time, Jeffrey Sachs, the pre-eminent economist of our times, turns his attention to his homeland, the United States, to reveal the stunning inadequacy of American-style capitalism and to offer a bold and ambitious plan to change it. Jeffrey Sachs has visited more than a hundred countries on five continents, invited to help diagnose and cure seemingly intractable economic problems. Now, in the wake of the worst recession in recent history, Sachs turns his focus on the United States."
