Virtual Library Cards - Madison Public Library
During the temporary closing of Madison Public Libraries due to COVID-19, the library system is offering virtual library cards for use online.
If you don’t already have a library card, complete this form and a new digital library card will be emailed to you. According to the MadisonPublicLibrary.org: website: Your virtual library card provides access to Wisconsin's Digital Library (which is home to more than 71,000 digital books, audiobooks, videos and more) through June 30, 2020, as well as many other online resources, including more ebooks and online magazines purchased through an emergency gift from the Madison Public Library Foundation. Once the library re-opens, users can visit any library location with their photo ID and proof of address to get a full use library card. Please email email@example.com if you have any questions.
