The Madera Library is open five days a week thanks to the efforts of volunteers.  We have almost 8,000 books and we average about 18,000 checkouts every year.  Each class visits the library on a weekly basis.  Kindergartners check out one book, all other grades can check out two books for a two-week period.  When books are lost, students are responsible to pay the replacement cost of the book.
