We all know that February is a month about love…so come in to the Madison Library and find a new book to love! The library is again having a “Blind Date with a Book” promotion through the month of February–simply come in to the library, look over our display of eligible books & check one (or more) out. Take it home & unwrap it, start reading! Don’t like it–no problems, no hard feelings. Like it–great! You just met a new favorite author or began reading a new genre of books. When you return your book, just write the title and “yes” or “no” on the provided heart and that’s it! Look for the books on the shelves with hearts attached to see what others have been reading. So come in to the library today & meet your potential next favorite book–no strings attached!

Jackie Siegert is receiving her 10 year anniversary pin from the president of the Madison Library Board Josh Amland for 10 years of service with the Madison Library and the Pioneerland Library System. Jackie started as an assistant with only about 15 hours a week and has become one of the few Library AssistantV’s in Pioneerland. Besides being in charge of ”her” library most of the time, she helps organize Legacy programs and the Winter Reading Program. The library couldn’t run without Jackie. The patrons, the city and Pioneerland are very fortunate to have Jackie working in the Madison Library.
