When we partnered with Ryan Companies to plan a new mixed-use facility for Uptown Marion we developed three goals: Build a flexible library space to meet 21st century library needs – one capable of quickly adapting to change; Make the Library the centerpiece of Uptown Marion’s identity and future – take advantage of our traffic and turn it into activity that drives economic development; and Add taxable value to the community that will contribute to future funding. We’re now taking the next steps to achieve these goals.
We've got something going on just about every day the week of March 16 - 20, from a Learn to Code class to movies.
