The Madison Public Library is dedicated to serving all teens in Madison with access to the diverse collections, meeting spaces, internet & computers, programming and online resources in all 9 library locations (+ the Dream Bus).
The library connects to teenagers outside of the library buildings by following an equitable approach and largely focuses on resourcing the requests from community partner organizations that work directly with at-risk teens or within the juvenile court system through the Bubbler's Making Justice program.
