Madison Public Library is joining with The Independent Television Service (ITVS), to present its popular Community Cinema program. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of nine documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Madison Public Library will screen Community Cinema films monthly from September through June at the Sequoya Library on the third Saturday of each month at 1 pm. After the screenings, Madison Public Library and Community Cinema will feature panel discussions with leading community based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help people learn more and get involved.

Each year Madison Public Library partners with UW-Madison to extend this perennially popular program into the broader community with book discussion groups and programs at our libraries. This year all nine of our locations are hosting book discussions and some will be hosting hands-on cyanotype making workshops.
