All Madison Public Library locations will be closed on Friday, January 12 and Saturday, January 13 due to predicted extreme weather conditions. All library events and all community events held in Madison Public Libraries on both days will also be canceled. Monday, January 15 is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and all libraries will be closed in honor of the holiday.
Library customers may use the library remotely by using LINKcat to place holds, check library card records, or renew items. Library items may also be renewed by calling Telecirc (608-242-4700) or any open library. The library's databases and downloadable audiobooks and eBooks are also accessible 24/7 with a library card. Library book drops will be open, but since the library no longer charges overdue fines, library users are encouraged to only return materials if they can do so safely.
As always, during City of Madison declared snow emergencies and days of extreme temperatures this season, please call the library you plan to visit in advance, as updates may occur throughout the week or programs may be canceled even if libraries are open. For broader City of Madison weather closures, check the City of Madison website at https://www.cityofmadison.com. If you are in need of help, please use 211 Wisconsin to help connect with food, shelter, safety, or other community resources.
All Madison Public Libraries will also be closed on Monday, January 15 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
