Friends of the Library

Friends of Madison Public Library

Friends of MPL LogoThe Friends of the Madison Public Library provide volunteer support and recognition, advocacy, and supplemental funds for special projects and collections that the Library could otherwise not afford. Thanks to the proceeds from a thriving Friends Book Store at the Central Library and successful book sales and other events, the Friends have contributed greatly to the Library's programs and services. Each branch library also has its own Friends group.

Become a Friend! Print out the membership application form (PDF 249KB) and send it in with payment. You'll receive confirmation in the mail, the Friends newsletter, and sneak-preview access to Friends' sponsored book sales.
