The future of the Marion Library is a little bit dimmer now that the votes are counted and our proposed levy increase lost. Our needs are real and great and we are disappointed in the outcome. We do want to thank all of our patrons and supporters who took the time to go to the polls and voted for us yesterday! We'll be trying again in 2015 -- the soonest we can. Please spread the word about the good work we do and help us towards a brighter future!
