Fall into Reading Program

Going on now at the Marion Public Library:  Fall Into Reading Program

Adults can pick up a punch card at the library.  For every book checked out, adults will receive a punch on their punch card.  The punch card has 10 punches.  When the punch card is filled, adults will receive a FREE book of their choice!

Teens: Fill up your punch card and enter your name into the teen prize drawing of your choice! You will also earn one free book for every punch card you fill up.

Children can pick up a punch card at the library.  Each time they check out books, their punch card will be punched.  The punch card has 5 punches.  When the punch card is filled, they earn a FREE book!  Children can then get a new punch card to start all over again.

The Joy of Coloring Workshop

Monday, October 12, 2015 - 6:00pm - 6:45pm

Coloring is not just for kids..it is for everyone!

For many of us, when we think of coloring, we connect to the innocence of childhood and a time when we weren't burdened by responsibility and expectation. Picking up a crayon once again can help us reconnect to a sense of simplicity we have temporarily lost.

Choosing colors and the gentle, repetitive motion of your hand as you bring color to paper helps quiet your mind--bringing your usual rapid-fire thoughts down to a much slower pace.  Coloring is one of the best forms of meditation and relaxation.  Join us for a stress-free, relaxing workshop!

  • Supplies provided.
  • All ages are welcome!

There's more to Marion Public Library than just books!

When most of us think of the library, we think of books.  And that's true, Marion Public Library has a wonderful selection of books for all ages, fiction and non-fiction.  But did you know our library has so much more than books?  Here's some other great things we have to offer here at Marion Public Library:

-Videos and DVDs- We have an extensive collection of videos and DVDs here at the library!  You'd be surprised--we even have new releases that you'd find at the video store.  And even better--checking a video out from the library is FREE, and you can have them for a full week!

-Audio Books- Don't have time to read a book?  Have trouble seeing?  Taking a long car trip?  Audio books are for you!

-Playaway- These are the same as audio books, except they're in MP3 form.  All you need is a AAA battery and ear buds (ear buds are available at the circulation desk) and you're in business. 

-Puzzles, Puppets, Educational Toys, Video games and Books on Tape and CD- We all know what the weather has been like this week.  Are the kids bored with their same old toys?  Bring them to the library!  There's so much to choose from, they're bound to be having fun before you know it.

-Magazines- Can't afford to subscribe to all the magazines you want to?  You're in luck!  You can stop in and sit on a cozy chair and read the latest issue, or back issues of magazines are available for checking out.  The library also has newspapers for you to enjoy, too. 

-Computers and Wireless Internet- Sometimes it's hard to get internet access, or you don't have access to a computer at home.  Come visit the library, and use one of our computers, or bring your own laptop and use our wireless internet!  What better place to work on a project or online work than in the library setting. 

The best part?  All of these are available for no cost to you!  Come in soon and take advantage of the wonderful materials to choose from at Marion Public Library!
