Hiring Student Help

We are always accepting applications for a few good student workers for our library and Student Achievement Center. Do you have what it takes? We're looking for students who are motivated, hard working and comfortable with technology and learning new things. This is a great opportunity for a job which would look wonderful on a resume. Students must be taking at least six credits to be eligible. Stop by today and pick up an application! 


Little Free Library

Maybe you've heard of the "Little Free Library" trend, which allows community members to create small book exchange boxes to drop off or pick up all kinds of books. The Watertown campus library has its own indoor version! Stop by and pick up a book, or drop off one you've already read. This is a fun way to encourage reading and community participation, and hey- it's green, too!

Suggestion Box



The Madison College Libraries do not provide proctoring services. However, we are happy to serve as a location for exam make-ups. We cannot guarantee students will be supervised taking their exam.

For information about proctoring options, please contact your department.

Also, many local public libraries offer proctoring services.
