Book Center & Programming Update 


The health and safety of our staff, volunteers and community members is of utmost importance to us. In response to Covid-19 outbreak, until further notice Madison Reading Project has taken the following precautions to minimize community impact:


  • Individual and Group Volunteer shifts have been cancelled.

  • Our Book Center is currently closed to the public.

  • We are accepting book donations by appointment only.

  • We are following safety recommendations and have limited staff time in our Book Center.


We will continue to monitor the situation and follow Public Health recommendations and work to ensure consistent communication with our program partners.
