You are invited to provide input and feedback on the library. Thoughts about the collection, programs, facility and role of the library in our city are welcome. This is a great time to share, participate in open conversation and be sure your voice is heard. If you don’t know about all the services the library has to offer, this is also a great time to stop in and ask a question. This is an ongoing session held the fourth Monday of each month from 4:45-5:15PM at the Marion Public Library, 1095 6th Avenue, Marion, Iowa 52302.

Change is the only constant, for all of us. Here at the Marion Public Library, this truth is no different.  Have you visited us recently and found a chair in a different spot? Have you noticed that some of our displays have changed spaces? There's a reason for that and we want to talk about it.  We manage a collection of books, videos, reference materials and more. We're also constantly curating the Library to fit YOU!  What does that mean?
