Women’s history month

At the Madison Library we’re celebrating March, Women’s History Month, with biographies of trailblazing women, as well as a weekly table of genre fiction featuring female protagonists. Be sure to check out this week’s feature – female detectives!

Give large print “a look”

Did you know that the Madison Library has a wide (and ever expanding) selection of large print books? Here are a few of this week’s new arrivals in large print fiction (we also have large print non-fiction):


Take a reading vacation


It’s getting chilly out there, so why not take a reading vacation to the beach with one of this week’s featured titles? 

Don’t let the forecast get you down


Winter’s on it’s way, but don’t despair! Instead, stop by the library and check out this week’s displays of fun hobby and craft books. You’re bound to find the perfect thing to keep you busy at home when that snow starts piling up!
