March Break Fun @ Madoc Public Library
We have a lot of fun things planned for March Break this year. There may even be a few surprises along the way. For specific information on individual events, please see our facebook page.
Libby is the new user-friendly app from Overdrive that allows Patrons to borrow ebooks and audiobooks with ease! Available for mobile devices, and computers running Windows 10.
Note: Please disregard any information regarding Kindle devices, as they are not compatible with Overdrive and Libby in Canada.
