We ask that ALL PATRONS wear a mask while visiting the library.

Free STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) Workshops will be available to children in kindergarten through 5th grades on Saturdays from 1-2pm at the library starting on August 21st. Check our Workshop Schedule on our Facebook page and  Kids Corner on this website to see which ones interest your child and sign up soon for as many sessions as you like!

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, 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 if you have not been vaccinated.  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.

You may send a fax, have copies made, or get something notarized, with or without an  appointment. We will continue to offer curbside library orders (by phone or email) for your convenience, as well.

Update:  Don’t forget that Overdrive is available to you online so you can download e-books and audio books. Your library card number gets entered after selecting our library. Then enter your pin number, which is the last four numbers on your library card. No fines will be  accrued during this time that we are closed.  If you do not have a library card, call the Library between 10-12 Mon-Fri and we can issue you one over the phone.
