Welcome to the Friends of the Madison Public Library

The Friends of the Madison Public Library (FMPL) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to contributing to the outstanding services provided by the library through volunteer support and supplemental funding for special programming and expanding the collection.  Money raised by Friends through our Annual March Gala, Touch a Truck and our Annual Appeal allows the library to provide additional programming that it would otherwise be unable to afford through state and local government contributions alone.  The Friends present quarterly gifts to the library where the primary beneficiaries are the children’s programs and the book and media collections.  Thank you to the hundreds of families and business in our community that contribute to Friends!

  • 2014 Annual Appeal is underway!

    November is the month when the Friends of the Library conduct the Annual Appeal. Each year we reach out to our patrons and neighbors for help in sustaining the collection and programs offered by the Madison Public Library. You have been generous and funding raised over this last year helped us to contribute $32,000 to the collection, programming and special projects, and to fund the Summer Reading Program and other popular programs for the children and teens. Physical improvements included the purchase of the courtyard furniture and upgrades to the Chase Room technology. A portion of this year’s Annual Appeal funds will continue to add to the Children’s Department renovation fund that the proceeds from this summer’s very successful Touch A Truck started. I hope we can count on you to continue to donate to the Appeal and help us bring the plan into reality.

    This holiday season we give thanks for all the wonderful support we have received over the years. Thank you for your generosity.
