CHILDREN'S

Lifetime learning

Marion Public Library welcomes children with developmentally suitable programs and materials, right down to kid-size furniture and equipment.

Check out MPL's Family Programming, our new YouTube channel with videos created here. Visit often - it will be updated regularly.

Programs are resuming as COVID levels have dropped. Find out about programs and sign up at our calendar.

 

Children 8 and younger are expected to be accompanied by an adult or a caregiver 10 or older. See our Safe Child policy.

Computers

Children's has 4 computers that can be used for 30 minutes each day. The early-literacy computers have reopened. 

Library cards

You can get library cards for each child if you live in the city limits. Also, learn about library cards for children who are students who don't live in Marion yet go to school or preschool here, and cards for educators.
