The Friends of the Madison Public Library (FMPL) was created in the early 1960s to help build the “new” downtown library at 201 West Mifflin Street. FMPL works out of the Central Library and is closely linked to that building, but has a mission to ensure the best possible library service to the entire Madison community.
There are eight “Neighborhood Libraries” in the city of Madison and each has its own Friends group. All Friends groups raise money for library programs and services. All groups sell used books, and some also raise money with other activities such as selling book bags, crafts, pies, and other baked goods. Use the links below for information about the groups that have Facebook or web pages.
