    Our Mission


    New Madison Public Library is an educational, informational, and recreational center for the public, meeting the needs of our patrons and underserved populations through equal access to information, literacy, and technology. By offering a carefully selected variety of materials, diverse programing, and superior patron service to our communities, we aid the public’s quest for knowledge and entertainment while stimulating the thinking process and increasing literacy development.
