The Marion Public Library on 600 South Washington Street provides access to ideas and information for opportunities of life-long learning and development all year long. For Main Street’s next First Friday Downtown Celebration we want to highlight this magical place and invite you to Fall into Your Library! Enjoy this impressive facility and the world of opportunity inside it on Friday, November 7th.
Fall is a season of change that speaks to the senses – the crunch of leaves, the kaleidoscope of colors, and the coolness of the air. The impending holidays invite togetherness and create the perfect setting for family activities. The Marion Public Library provides fun ways to strengthen family bonds while exploring the richness of fall.
