MARION PUBLIC LIBRARY TO OPEN NOVEMBER 10
The Marion Library Board of Trustees has set the opening date for the new Marion Public Library facility at 1101 6th Ave., Marion. The library will open to patrons on Thursday, Nov. 10, 2022, at 9 a.m.
When occupancy is granted, patrons can expect to access the entire library collection, enjoy on-site programming for all age groups, use WiFi, computer stations, laptops or tablets, schedule meeting and study rooms, access the outdoor reading terrace, use the maker space, enjoy curbside delivery service, and more.
Some minor construction work will continue during business hours in the coming months but should not further delay the opening of the facility. The drive-up book drop and drive-thru window as well as the library recording studio and greenscreen room are not expected to be in service by the opening date.
A grand opening celebration is being planned for a later date.
Library patrons can continue to pick up holds and use the computers at the Uptown Branch location (1064 7th Ave., Marion) through Sunday, Nov. 6. The collection is no longer available for browsing as materials are being transferred to the new location.
Library hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Friday, 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, noon-4 p.m.
