There are several library closures and an hours change planned for Madison Public Libraries in May: 

  • May 19 (Last Day of Sunday Hours)
  • May 26-27 (Library Closed for Memorial Day)
  • May 31 (Library Closed for All-Staff In-Service Day)

Three Madison Public Libraries (Central, Goodman South Madison and Lakeview Libraries) offer Sunday hours from 1-5pm. May 19 is the last open Sunday of the summer - Sunday hours will return after Labor Day on Sunday, September 8.

All Madison Public Libraries will be CLOSED Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27 for Memorial Day. All libraries will also close that same week on Friday, May 31 for an all-staff in-service day.

While our physical spaces are closed, you can continue to access LINKcat to place holds, check your record, or renew items you've checked out. You can also check out our always-accessible online collections, ebooks and downloadable audiobooks from Wisconsin's Digital Library, Kanopy streaming video, Flipster magazines, and other online collections. Book returns will remain open for 24/7 service and Pinney Library has a drive-through book drop for your convenience.

If you are in need of help while the library is closed, please use 211 Wisconsin to help connect with food, shelter, safety, or other community resources. See all City of Madison holiday closures.
