Madison Public Library Covid-19 Updates


The Madison Public Library is committed to the safety and well being of our patrons and staff.  Interlibrary loan delivery has been suspended throughout the state due to the current Covid-19 crisis. We have enhanced our digital content thanks to the generosity of many of our vendors.  We will remain fully closed as of March 18th.  We will remain closed while the Madison public schools are closed.   At this time, we have cancelled all programming (including Mini Courses) through June 30th. We will re-evaluate as needed.  Please subscribe to our email newsletters and follow us on social media for updates.

If you have any difficulty using your library account, please contact us.
