The Madison Library is following Governor Brad Little’s plan, “Idaho Rebounds: Guidelines for Opening Up Idaho.”

We are taking the necessary steps to keep our staff and patrons safe. The Library building continues to be closed, but we will start phasing services to open.

Starting May 6, we will begin curbside delivery Monday and Friday from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm, and Wednesday from 2:00 to 6:00 pm. We will be closed Tuesday and Thursday to allow books time to sanitize. To use this service, patrons may place up to 15 items on hold using our online catalog, or by telephone.  You will be contacted by the usual means you have selected when your items come in (either email or phone). Please allow 48 hours AFTER this notification for us to get your items ready and available for you. 

The book return will continue to be open. Please return materials to the book drops. If you have questions about materials or due dates, please contact us at 208-356-3461.

The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.
