Project Moving Forward

MCLS has been working hard toward our dream of making the Marion Library the up-to-date, functional, and historically preserved library that Marion County deserves. We are working toward an addition of 4,000 sq. ft. and a fully preserved historic structure.


Preserving the historic structure will mean replacing all of the building's major systems, repairing existing damage, and enursing the building materials are consistent and compatible with the original building materials.


To date, $2.5 million dollars has been raised toward the project and MCLS is continuing to raise funds. The total goal for the project is $3.5 million.


Renovation updates will be made available on the Marion county Library website– marioncountylibrary.org – throughout the project.
