Find staff reviews on MPL YouTube playlist. When looking to get your 2023 book reading list together, check out the What Are You Reading? playlist on Marion Public Library YouTube channel. A couple of times a month a new review is added as a result of a recent read by a MPL staff member. The review should give you enough information to help you decide if it is a worthy book to add to your reading list. Many times, the review will also include a readalike to help you compare with authors you may be more familiar with. A number of genres have been covered and the list goes back for over 2 years, so spend some time and discover your next read. Marion Public Library YouTube playlist: What Are You Reading?

Did you get a new device during the holiday? Do you want to try to get connected digitally with the Libby app? The Libby app connects you to ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and more while using your library card. You will have access to thousands of titles, can read across devices, can download for easier remote access and can listen in your vehicle. MPL library staff can help you get connected. Just stop by the front desk to ask for assistance to walk through the process. Or attend our January program. Better yet, set up a Book A Librarian session where you can get 30 minutes to 1 hour of one-on-one time to do so. These sessions are also great if you need extra help in genealogy and local history research or even diving into online sources. My First Library Card to start the Library habit at birth.
