Head Librarian Julie Forbus works with the Board of Trustees, who include Kim Harper, Barbara Moody, Christine Stratton, Ann Withee-Heald and Phil Daigle.
Madison is one of many participants in the Maine Infonet Download Library. Subscription fees from all participating libraries combine to provide much more than any one library could on its own--the true concept of lending libraries.
Over 5000 titles are currently available online; more will be added each month. Library patrons from Madison, Anson, North Anson, Starks and Athens are all eligible for this service, as they all contribute to the library budget.
The process is simple. All you need is a computer, internet access and your library card. To log in, sign in by town or library name -- Madison or Madison Public Library, even if you live in Anson, North Anson, Starks, Athens or Embden. Enter your 13 digit library card number located on the back of your card, click My Account, then My Cart.
Titles are checked out for 7 or 14 days. You may return titles early; if you haven't finished a book and the checkout time expires, you may check out the book again, if no one has placed a hold on it. Patrons are allowed three titles at a time.
