Last date to take the survey was July 19, 2015: thanks to those of you who participated!  When you plan for a new library facility you need to look beyond your current needs and try to envision what the community will be like in 20 years. We started down that road last year when we developed an assessment of the features needed in a new Marion library, one designed to serve a city of 60,000 in 2035.
