Welcome to the Marion Public Library!
For over 100 years, we have been a part of this community, proudly serving the citizens of Marion, Indiana. Whether you’re here for books, DVDs, research assistance, internet access, or a spot to meet, you’ve come to the right place.
Holiday hours this Easter weekend
Marion Public Library will close Friday and Sunday. Stop by Saturday when we’ll be open regular hours: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Whether you want movies to entertain the family, audiobooks to play while you prepare for Easter, CDs to set the mood for dinner, framed prints to hang on the wall, or last-minute recipe ideas from our extensive collection of cookbooks and cooking magazines, MPL has you covered.
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.
Tax forms, AARP Tax Preparation both at MPL
MPL has a limited number of Indiana tax booklets (basic form is inside), though we have run out of federal forms and booklets. These and other forms are available at the state and federal tax web sites (links here) and patrons may either print them from the public computers or have forms printed at the reference desk. Cost: 10 cents a page.
Volunteer tax preparers will help fill out tax forms at Marion Public Library in the Carnegie Room in the Carnegie Building, which is on the second floor of the Museum side. Hours are 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and 1-6 p.m. Thursdays. Those getting taxes filed will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and are expected to wait in the Library Connector until the doors open at the stated times. Find out more here.
