Job openings

There are no openings at this time.


Note: The state of Indiana requires certification by the Indiana State Library for some librarian positions. If licensing is required, this will be mentioned in the job description.


MPL is a Class B library, which is based upon the population of our service area - the city of Marion. Here's a link to the Indiana Certification Manual.

Volunteer opportunities

Those interested in volunteering at MPL can pick up an application in the Administration Office, or if that is closed, the Reference Desk.

Opportunities depend upon the needs of the library and the skills and interest of volunteers.
