Come to the Library with proof of your Madison Residency, fill out a form with your name, address, phone number, and email address – used only to remind you your materials are due shortly. You will be notified that requested books are ready and, if you wish, updates on coming library events. Once you have your hometown card you may also use it in other Connecticut libraries. And you can use your card to access the online databases, too.
Can’t find what you’re looking for in our LION catalog? We offer interlibrary loan services for borrowing books from throughout the state. Many libraries will not send their DVDs or music CDs, but we try to request them for you. For more information, please call the library at (203) 245-7365 and ask to speak to our Interlibrary Loan Department or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can also order multiple copies for your book club members. Please contact the Interlibrary Loan Department for more information.
