March is Reach Out to Your Neighbor Month and throughout the Huntsville-Madison County Library system we aim to be a steady source of information and resources for our neighboring communities.

At the Downtown Huntsville Library, due to our centralized location and numerous services, we serve a diverse patron base.  Patrons experiencing homelessness utilize our branch’s services often.  Our free public computers, free Wi-Fi, and plentiful reading materials are available to them during their visits to the library. We also offer a free phone in our patron lounge that may be used for short outgoing calls.
