Volunteers from the friends group are instrumental in helping to promote library services, raise much needed funds for library programs, provide additional staffing to help ensure the success of family programming, purchasing equipment, programming awards, prizes, and promotional items.

As a volunteer  you will help improve the quality of our library and it’s services, and meet some great people at the same time!

The Friends welcome your donations of books for the Book Cave. Proceeds from the sale of donations benefit the Marion County Public Library. Donations can be dropped off during regular library hours at the circulation desk.

Due to the dated information contained in encyclopedias and textbooks, we are not able to accept these. Large donations may be delivered to the back loading dock. Please call the library at 304-366-1210 ext. 111 to make arrangements.
