The library will be closed on Wednesday, November 11 for Veteran's Day. No items are due. Thank you.

The library will be closed Thursday August 18th through Saturday August 27th for infrastructure updates.

No items will be due and the book drop will also be closed.

A word from the Director:

“The Madison Library District is getting upgrades!  Our sorting machine has become outdated and the parts are obsolete. 

“We will be closed Thursday, August 18th through Saturday August 27th to disassemble and remove the old machine to make way for our new sorting machine. We are excited to update to a new book sorter with enhanced technology. We will also be installing new security gates. There will be one wide aisle for ease of access as well as increased security and data capabilities. We will be open and resume our usual hours starting Monday, August 29th. We invite you to stop by and see the changes!”

Thank you!

      Hi Robert – We are open today (Tuesday, August 16) and tomorrow (Wednesday, August 17), but will close starting Thursday, August 18. If you’re having problems renewing today, most likely there is a message or fine on your account. Please call into the library and speak to a librarian. Have your library card number ready, and we can check your account and find out what is happening with it.

      Also, please don’t post your personal information on the website. This is not a secure way to communicate, and anyone in the world can get that information. I’ve removed your phone number to protect your privacy.

      Again, we are open today and tomorrow, and closed on Thursday. Please give us a call at the library – 208-356-3461. We are open until 8:00 pm.

      Thank you
