Madison Public Library Foundation issued $110,000 in grants to Madison Public Library to cover the costs of new self-check machines at Sequoya, Meadowridge and Goodman South Madison libraries, and replacement materials for Central Library’s collection.

The three self-check replacement machines will allow the library to have all its self-checks on the same management system, creating efficiency for technology, marketing and collection support staff. The Adult Nonfiction collection at Central Library received $40,000 in new items, allowing additions to the self-help, LGBTQIA++, sports, history and travel sections.
