September Book Club

Wednesday, September 23, 2015 - 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Book Jacket     “An edge-of-your seat debut thriller with laugh-out-loud dialogue mixed in. After a bad storm cuts his team’s Mars mission short, injured astronaut Mark Watley is stranded. Now he’s got to figure out how to survive without air, shelter, food, or water on the harsh Martian landscape until the next manned mission in four years. It’s Science Fiction with a capital S, but Weir does a fabulous job of making it accessible to non-science geeks (like me). “ -- Dan Brooks for LibraryReads.

Want to read this book and join a group discussion? Sign up at the Check-out Desk.

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!
