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. Local government information includes ordinances, zoning, and environmental issues.
