Starting July 20, the Marion Public Library will be open for limited services by appointment.
We are excited to welcome the community back into the building but will still be focused on the safety of the public and our staff. Therefore, patrons will be able to come into the building for 1-hour time slots by appointment only. Each guest over the age of 2 is required to have their own appointment. Individuals must be at least 16 years old to book an appointment. Individuals under 16 years old must be accompanied by a caregiver. Appointments can be made by using the link below or calling the library.
All materials returned to the Library are being held in quarantine for three days before going through our check-in process. With the Library being Fine Free as of July 1, 2020, no late fees will be charged for any returned materials.
Use of the library by appointment should be focused on tasks that can only be accomplished through access to library resources such as computer & internet usage, printing, quick browsing for materials, DOT kiosk, etc. Casual use of the library such as finding a quiet place to read or a good spot to accomplish work in a public place is not allowed during your allotted time in the library.
- All people over the age of 2 will be required to wear masks per CDC guidelines and sanitize hands. The library will provide a mask to anyone who does not have one for their appointment.
- Please do not come into the Library if you or a member of your household are feeling ill or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 in the last 2 weeks.
- All toys & games as well as lounge seating have been removed. Use of the study rooms, conference rooms or community room is not permitted during this time.
- Holds pickups will still be available. Please call the Library at 319-377-3412 to arrange a time for pick up before visiting the library.
