Welcome to the Fort Madison Public Library!

The Library is closed to the public until further notice.  Librarians will be answering phones and responding to e-mail from 9:30 am through 5:00 pm Monday through Thursday and 9:30 am through 4:30 pm on Friday.  More information here (updated 4/7/20).  We are offering curbside pick-up of library materials by appointment Monday through Friday with the exception of the following days:
Monday, May 18
Friday, May 22
Monday, May 25

Update 4/28/20
Library employees are working together with the library board and the city to put into place new policies and procedures so we can resume operations safely for both patrons and library workers. At this time we do not plan to open on Friday, May 1st. However, we hope to begin a phased process of reopening soon and will keep you updated as we are able to offer more services. In the meantime, we are continuing to offer curbside pick-up of library materials and expanded access to our online resources with Digital Access Cards.

We have missed all of you and look forward to seeing you back at the Fort Madison Public Library!

Live in Fort Madison or rural Lee County?  Now you can sign up for a digital resources card to access the library's online books, magazines, music, movies and databases until you are able to visit the library in person.  Apply by filling out this Google form.
