If you haven’t been to Inspire lately, you’re missing out

Inspire is Indiana’s online library. Its databases can help you find test preparation and build your resume in the Gale Testing and Education Center. TeachingBooks.net will lead you to resources about children’s and young adult literature. Indiana Memory and Hoosier State Chronicles will help you explore Indiana’s history. And new to Inspire is Rosetta Stone, which offers instruction in 30 languages. Use your favorite device to access all this and more. Oh yeah, and the price is right for Hoosiers: It’s all free.

See Library’s information on Indiana Gateway

Indiana public libraries – like schools, townships, cities, counties – are funded by taxpayers. Libraries specifically get money from property taxes within specific library districts. In Marion Public Library’s case, that money comes from taxable properties within the city of Marion.
