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.


The first of four phases in the museum restoration project is finally finished. Be sure to check out History Made Here and the interactive Gas Boom exhibit. The grand re-opening is Oct. 7. See the calendar for details.

Request books from other libraries yourself

Marion Public Library is participating in SRCS – the Statewide Remote Circulation System, pronounced circs.


You’ll be able to use a portal on this site and on our computers. Just plug in the title you’re looking for and see if other Indiana libraries have that book or other resource. If not, you can use Interlibrary Loan to get that title. Learn more about it here or go straight to SRCS. It will be up and running soon.

Learn about the library’s 2017 budget

MPL’s board will meet 6 p.m. Sept. 20 to consider the 2017 budget. You can see the Notice to Taxpayers here.

And while we’re talking about the budget …

MPL is looking at ways to save taxpayer dollars by analyzing what hours best serve you. Please take this very brief survey so you can give your preferences.
