Government documents

 Since 1979, the Marion Public Library has served as a depository for Federal, State, and Local government publications. As a depository, we provide free public access to a vast array of informational resources from many government agencies through the Federal Depository Library Program under the services of the Government Printing Office. The State Library of Ohio supports the state’s government agencies by distributing documents to public and academic libraries.

Voter Registration

Talking books

What is it?

Eligible Ohio residents who are unable to read print books can receive free recorded books, magazines, and playback equipment delivered to their homes free of charge.  This service is provided through the State Library of Ohio and the Ohio Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled.  More information can be found at this website.

Homebound delivery

What is it?

We will deliver library materials to your residence every two weeks or once per month depending on your needs.  You can tell us your general preferences for library materials, or give us specific requests and we will strive to fulfill them.  Marion Public Library provides this service free of charge to adults living within the city limits who have difficulty visiting the library or who live in a retirement or nursing home.

Meeting Rooms

One large (capacity 50) meeting room and one smaller meeting room (capacity 25) are available. Both rooms include a sink and a small refrigerator. Apply for use through the office of the Library Director.
