Website is http://hmcpl.org/madison Phone number is 256-461-0046. Interested to see what a modern, small-town library should look like? Then check out the Madison Public Library. In addition to traditional books and magazines, you can now get library eBooks on your Apple device, Kindle, or Nook. There are also self-contained audio books ready to listen to (altho you may need to pop in a fresh AAA battery, and use your headphones). There are lots of movies, TV shows, and instructional programs on DVDs, and music on CDs. This library is a branch of "fort book," the Huntsville Madison County Public Library, so there is lots of material available to choose from. If you are computer or library-oriented, you can go online to see if the item you want is available for checkout now, or when it is due back in. You can even put a hold on some items, so they will save them for you until you get there. It was heart-warming to see even the children excited to check out library materials during their summer break!
