The Marion Public Library Board of Trustees has approved the Katz parking lot as the site for the new library building. The City Council recently approved a resolution of support for an 18-million-dollar Library Building project. This resolution set in motion the Library Board of Trustees decision regarding the location.
“This is a significant milestone for the Library and our community. This project has been a long time in the making, and we are finally achieving significant progress on how we will deliver library services to the community now and well into the future, with a new building being a significant part of this plan”, commented Library Director Hollie Trenary.
The new 52,000 square foot building doubles the size of the current Library building. It will include innovative programming and meeting spaces. As this new building is envisioned, the needs of this community regarding library services will continue to be at the forefront of the planning process.
