          The Hepburn Library of Madrid Board of Trustees and Staff take high interest in protecting our staff and patrons- in particular the high-risk populations we serve and the high-risk populations who work and volunteer for us. Therefore, the library is cancelling all programs, events, community room bookings and outreach activities at this time as well as our regularly scheduled hours of operation. This closure is a direct order from the Town of Madrid and will be until further notice.

If you or your group has booked the Community room, we will be in touch to arrange a rescheduling or cancellation.

We will continue to communicate any further impacts to the Library as a result of COVID-19. In the meantime, as a reminder, the Library has many digital services available to you for free, such as e-books and e-audiobooks ; and music services; and digital subscriptions to newspapers and magazines.  Please check out the following websites for access to library services while we are closed during this time:  and

The library is available via email at , on our Facebook page: and via phone messages at (315)322-5673.

Thank you for your patience as we work through this developing situation.
