We are so pleased to be able to offer Playaway audio books to our patrons, starting Monday, November 4th. What is a Playaway, you ask? It’s an audio book that requires no WiFi, no CD player, no paid subscription, and no downloads. You simply put a AAA battery in the top of the Playaway, plug in your headphones, and you can listen to your audio book. Playaways are small, perfect to take on your run; tuck into your pocket when you’re walking the dog  or getting your to-do list done at home.

Public/private partnerships offer a new and exciting way to achieve civic goals at lower cost and avoid public debt, but they are a new way of doing things and there can be misunderstandings about them. An article appeared in the August 6 edition of the Marion Times about the Plug Into Your Community Event sponsored by the Marion Chamber of Commerce, MEDCO, the Marion Blue Zones Project, and the City. The purpose of the event was to help people become more informed about what’s happening in the City. Unfortunately, most of the information in the article about the library project is wrong.

We’re finally getting around to making the library happen.
