Public Library, Marion, Ohio

[LIB7826] - Website

“Since 1886 Marion has enjoyed the benefits of a public library. Marion’s first library had an annual $1 a year subscription and was known as the Mechanics’ Library Association. In 1907 a Carnegie building was completed, which, with a few additions served the community through 1978. Our current building was occupied in 1979, and added to in 1997. Three branches serve Marion County communities in Caledonia, LaRue, and Prospect.”
