Madison Library District

Centennial Celebration

SERVING OUR COMMUNITY SINCE 1921

A Grand Event

On December 28, 2021, we turned 100!

The Madison Library District is now a grand old lady, having proudly served Rexburg and the surrounding community for a century. We’ve had our share of highs and lows, from growing pains which resulted in new buildings being built or remodeled, to times of plenty when the library and the community flourished. From book clubs to storytime, from stargazing to surfin’ the ‘net, our patrons have learned and grown with us. Come along as we celebrate this milestone year, and look back on some of the past events and issues of the day that affected our library. We look forward to serving you for another 100 years!

Celebrate Through the Decades

Each month, we’ll showcase what happened in the history of the library, the community, the country, and the world.
