What To Expect When Coming to the Library

We are happy to offer walk-in support to our Madison College community.  Full remote services are still available as well as our Book-A-Librarian and Book-A-TechXpert appointments if you are unable to or don't feel comfortable coming to, or working from, campus.  We can serve you really well either way.  

You are able to study in the library, use the computers, browse our collections, check items out--including reserve items, return items, print, scan and receive technology and research support from librarian coaches.  Study Rooms are available for groups up to 6 on an hourly basis.  The Quiet Study Room is now open.

We still need to take some precautions because our spaces can have many individuals in them at any one time. We are asking for your cooperation to keep us all safe and healthy as much as we can.


  1. Continue to keep a distance from each other whenever possible.
  2. Masks are recommended during high transmission rate periods.
  3. Use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting our space.  
  4. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue.
  5. We are open for individual or small group (1-6) study only.  
  6. You can book a study room for up to 6 people on an hourly basis.
  7. Covered drinks and light snacks are ok.  Just clean up after yourself please.
  8. Please do not move the furniture so proper distance can be maintained.
  9. Staff will be maintaining distance and may be wearing a mask while serving you.
