About Us

Welcome to the E.C. Scranton Memorial Library — Madison’s community resource since 1900.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for all Madison residents by providing access to information, fostering lifelong educational and cultural learning, and cultivating relationships among our residents through the exchange of ideas.

We strive to embrace all the ways that people are unique. This includes the diversity of ideas, backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. Moreover, diversity encompasses several themes of identity, including race, ethnicity, disability, age, gender, class, religion, types of family, and sexual orientation. We treat all people fairly, respectfully, and with dignity and compassion. All are welcome here!

Our experienced library staff is ready to assist you with book recommendations, research, and homework questions, learning to use your personal electronic device, job search help, acquiring multiple copies of books for your book group, and much more. Stop by today or explore our website to see all the ways we’re here for you!
