Ex Libris Again a Big Hit

Library supporters raised their craft beer-filled glasses, dined on local food samples and enjoyed sounds from local band The Whiskey Farm and DJ Rob Dz at our annual fall fundraiser, Ex Libris Vol. VI: Beer for Brunch, on November 4. Ex Libris photos are now online.

Richard Russo to Speak at Lunch for Libraries

Join us on April 18 at the Overture Center for Lunch for Libraries, a community fundraiser to support and celebrate Madison Public Library. This year's featured guest is Pultizer Prize-winning novelist and screenwriter Richard Russo

"I’m thrilled I can help Madison Public Library Foundation in its vital mission because of what the library system has done for me. I simply could not do my research into local history without the library’s physical and digital resources."
