We Support Local Authors

We are happy to support local and regional authors here at the Marion Library and to share them and their works with you.

Search our catalog for "iowa authors" (use the quotes) to find works in our collection. 

Each year we host Celebrate Writing @ MPL, a mini conference that connects area authors with readers and writers.
