Obituary Search

The Marion Public Library maintains an obituary file from late 1984 to 2009, of obituaries published in The Marion Star (The Marion Star is not indexed). Only obituaries for persons with a Marion County connection are contained in this file.

Obituary File



Marion Public Library is undergoing many changes this summer as we move forward on an interior design update project.  This has affected access to our Ohio Room collection, which has seen many of its less-used materials moved into storage.  Many of the more heavily used materials (microfilm, maps, Marion-specific materials) are still available for use.  Access to these may be limited due to other programs and events at the library this summer, so we encourage you to call ahead (740-387-0992) if you are planning to use these.  Your patience and understanding are greatly appreciated.

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.
