Thanks for your patience.


Marion Public Library has been serving the community since 1903. 

MPL takes that century-plus of service seriously as the COVID-19 virus has reached Indiana, and we will balance your need for our services with everyone's safety. MPL is closing at 5 p.m. March 18 and will be closed indefinitely. We will constantly re-assess what will work best for you and the community.

Thank you for understanding.


Find the latest about Coronavirus disease on the dedicated page on this site. It is designed to help you and your family find information about the virus and its spread, plus things to help the kids with homework and entertainment. These offerings will grow, so check back regularly.

We have adapted our circulation policies through April 30, doubling the time for DVDs (14 DVDs for 14 days) and letting you have 8 Hoopla checkouts. Don't forget out other digital offerings - Overdrive, Libby, and Tumblebooks.
