Diggers, dump trucks, limousines and rescue trucks are among the vehicles that will be stationed at the and the from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, rain or shine, for the annual Touch-a-Truck library fundraiser.

The event, sponsored by the Friends of the Madison Public Library in cooperation with the Madison Area YMCA and the Madison Rotary Club, raises money for library programs.

Organizers said meeting the truck drivers is always been a big part of the fun for attendees, but this year they expect one driver in particular will be especially popular.

Look for him behind the wheel of a jet-black, souped up “Batmobile” that will be complete with vertical doors, video cameras, strobe lights, and speakers pumping out music.

Tickets for childen, toddlers to age 12, are $10. Tickets for parents and teens are $5. For more information visit the Friends of the Madison Public Library website.
