Plan to Attend This Week’s Show with Uncle Henry!

This Wednesday, July 21st, at 4 p.m. Uncle Henry will inform and entertain us with the show, “The Nature of the Pond” on the lawn of the library. 

RAIN OR SHINE! We will be inside the library if there is a possibility of inclement weather.

Great news! New Acquisitions for July 2021! And more to come! Stay tuned!                                                                                                       We have purchased quite a few complete DVD mini-series available for 2 week check-outs. Complete seasons of Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, Merlin, Outlander and many more have just been added to our catalog. Check out our FOR READERS page on this website for the list of series cataloged so far.

 

Order a Child’s Seasonal Craft Kit And Literacy Activity!   This week we have an Olympics Craft since the Olympic games will begin.

Parents and Guardians:

Please call by Wednesday of this week for a Free Seasonal Craft Kit and Literacy Activity for your child! This kit will be available for pick up at the Madison County Library. Just call us at 948-4720 or email us at froebuck@madisoncountyvalibrary.org. Let us know your name and how many kits you’d like to pick up (curbside or inside the building) for your children. Please ask for one kit per child ages 3 through 7 years old.

Keep your library card in good standing! Please be mindful about overdue books “hiding” around your house and vehicle. Fines are accruing, starting in June. We are open Monday through Saturday each week (open 10-5 pm weekdays and 10-2 pm on Saturdays). You can renew books in person, email froebuck@madisoncountyvalibrary.org, or by phone 948-4720.  Thank you for promptly checking for any library books, movies, and other materials.

Our Doors Are Open!

The Madison County Library will allow patrons to come into the building. A mask is requested,  We thank our patrons in advance for following our safety protocols. We are thrilled to have you back in our building! We have lots of new books and audiobooks available for check out. Our computers are available for 2 hour time periods and you are also invited to come in and use our wi-fi.

Wi-Fi Service is available, as always, 24 hours a day and seven days a week from our parking lot, so that you may sit in your car or on our benches and enjoy our connections.
