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

Historical music performer Mark Bridge is coming to Madison, Tuesday, June 21.
Mark’s repertoire covers a wide variety of musical selections and subjects from the 1800’s . The songs include compositions by Stephen Foster, Daniel Decatur Emmett and other composers of the period along with many other selections popular during the Victorian era. Some of the songs are taken from actual “banjo instructors” dating back to the 1850’s.
The performance is open to all ages, free of charge and will be held at the Madison City Hall Auditorium, 7-8 p.m., Tuesday, June 21.
