Special Services

Homebound: Patrons who are unable to get to the library may join our homebound program. A volunteer will deliver materials to anyone in the Madison community who cannot come to us. If you would like to sign someone up for the Homebound service, please talk with Carrie Svigel at the library.

Fast Favorites:  Sign up for automatic holds on your favorite authors—we’ll call you when the books are here!  To sign up, click here.

Teacher Cards:  Teachers may obtain a separate library card to check out materials intended for classroom use. This card will be kept on file at the library. Ask for a pamphlet at the circulation desk that explains this and other services available to teachers.

Homeschoolers:  Teacher cards are also available for homeschooling parents.

Interlibrary Loan:  When MPL and the ClevNet library consortium do not own a book or other material that you need, we will try to obtain the item from another location.  Please see Public Services for Assistance.

Email Updates: Sign up for Net Notices and get library notifications via email, including holds that are available for you, overdue alerts, and account status updates.

Item Suggestions:  Not finding the item you want in our catalog? Let us know what you are looking for by completing the Item Suggestion Form here.

Tell Us: 
We have a suggestion box at the circulation desk, or you can make a suggestion here.

Job and Career Center:  Job openings, resume information and more here.

Copy, Print, Scan, Fax:  We have a printer/scanner and a fax machine in the Public Services area.  Purchase a fax card at the circulation desk; $1.75 for the first fax and $1.00 for additional faxes.

Remote Printing:  Print virtually any document or web page from your Internet connected PC to one of our Library printers.   There is no additional software required.  Here is the link for remote printing.

Notary:  We have two notaries on our staff.  Call the library to be sure one of them is available before coming in.  Be sure to bring in a valid photo ID.

Voter Registration:  We have voter registration forms at the front desk.  You can fill one out and we will send it in for you, or you can take one home.

Test Proctoring:  Please call the library and speak with Nancy Currie or Melanie if you need test proctor services.
