My First Library Card

My first Libaray Card

The "My First Library Card" program furthers our support for community-wide early literacy initiatives, like Let's Read 20.  We believe every child in Marion County needs a library card, and we want to make it known that It's Never Too Early To Get a Library Card!  

What makes this card so special?

  • No Late Fees on any materials
  • For use in checking out items exclusively from our Youth Services Area
  • All children under the age of 6 will receive this library card designation
  • 30 items may be checked out at any time
  • 7 educational DVDs from the Youth Services Area may be checked out


What do you need to sign your child up for their "My First Library Card"?


  • your little one
  • your valid photo ID
  • proof of address if address listed on your photo ID is not current

Marion Public Library says THANK YOU! to our own Marion Community Foundation for their grant to make this program possible.

And to MarionNoon Kiwanis and Marion Rotary for helping to continue the Literacy program.
