Important Genealogy Room Update

In order to get a jump on our move to our temporary location at 711 East Main, we will be closing the Genealogy Room early.  Beginning Tuesday, August 22, the room will be closed as we begin transferring items into their new, temp space.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but it should also help assure that all of the items in the genealogy room will be ready for use when we reopen September 25.  In addition, long-distance research assistance will remain inactive until we reopen at the temporary location.


While the room and library are closed, please note that there are other library resources that you may use.  There's Marion Memories, our online photo database (direct link here) and HeritageQuest (link here, please have your library card number ready).  We also have a plethora of links available to you on our Genealogy Links page, accessed here.


Again, we apologize for any inconvenience the closure may cause, but would like to reassure all of our patrons that with our remodel comes a larger genealogy room with room to expand our collection.  We look forward to the upcoming changes
