Monona Public Library

1000 Nichols Road


The Monona Public Library's primary mission is to provide, through the use of a variety of technologies, current, high-demand materials in a wide range of formats and subjects to fill the information and recreation needs of area residents and businesses. Through a balanced, well-maintained and current collection, the Library also seeks to stimulate the reading and learning interests of our citizens--from preschool children through the life-long learning or vocational needs of adults and seniors. We also seek to provide timely, accurate reference and information services to our customers, using the resources of our collection, electronic sources, and the broad resources of our regional library system.

A great, inexpensive place to take the kids!

I went there today for the third or fourth time, after taking my 8 month old and 3 year old to the park down the street. The children's section is really nice. My kids played for an hour or so, and as we were leaving, my son got upset because I didn't have any quarters for him to play the arcade game (which is located in the adult section for reasons unbeknownst to me). A grown woman (50+ish years old) loudly told my son, "shut up, there are people here trying to concentrate!" disgusted, I approached a library employee and told her what had happened. She said, "oh, that's unfortunate". And that's all. Nothing was said to the rude woman. If I would have known that's all that was going to be said, I would have taken matters into my own hands and told her where to shove it. I won't be returning, that was enough proof for me that they aren't as "child friendly" as they seem!

The children's room is awesome- lots of activities for children. Quiet, clean and lots of fun.

Quieter than Madison branch libraries (though that's not saying much). They do have a "quiet" room that has a fireplace.
