Passport Services: Madison Public Library is an official Passport Acceptance Facility for the U.S. Department of State. We offer passport processing and photo services. Click here for information about obtaining a passport.
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.
Hot Off the Presses 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.
