We are happy to begin offering limited capacity walk-in services to our currently enrolled students and Madison College staff only.   Full remote services are still available as well as our Book-A-Librarian and Book-A-TechXpert appointments.

You will now be able to individually 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.  The Quiet Study Room (Truax), Group Study Rooms and other areas of the library will not yet be available for use.

While things are improving we still need to take some precautions. We are asking for your help to keep us all safe and healthy as we transition back to working together in a face-to-face environment.    Thank you.  

  1. All unvaccinated, or not yet fully vaccinated, students and staff should wear a mask over their nose and mouth while using the library.
  2. If you are fully vaccinated, we encourage you to wear a mask should you feel more comfortable doing so as we transition into this next phase, but it is no longer required.  FYI...some staff will continue to wear masks too. 
  3. Continue to keep a distance of six feet from each other whenever possible.
  4. Use hand sanitizer when entering and exiting our space.  
  5. We are open for individual study only.  No pairs or groups---yet!
  6. Community members and children are not allowed at this time.
  7. Food or drink is currently not permitted in the library or SAC’s.
  8. Please do not move the furniture so proper distance can be maintained.
  9. Do not go into unrestricted areas or use stored items.
  10. Staff will be maintaining distance while serving you.  Nothing personal.  
  11. Please clean up after yourself and be sure to take all of your belongings.
