Mar 13, 2023

MARION — The Elizabeth Taber Library in Marion has a March schedule that is chock full of events. 

On Thursday, March 16 from 3 to 4 p.m., use recycled materials to build a Leprechaun Trap just in time for Saint Patrick’s Day. Donations of clean recycled materials are welcome.

Later on March 16 from 6 to 8 p.m., join in on a puzzle swap and exchange your gently used puzzle for a new one. Puzzles will be available to swap or purchase. Only puzzles that are in good condition and include all the pieces will be accepted. 

On Tuesday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m., learn about the history of attempts at banning books in American and international libraries and discuss books that have made the American Library Association’s Banned Book List. This month the Elizabeth Taber Library will be discussing Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five. Pick up copies at the library throughout the month.

The second annual “Lizzy T” trivia night fundraiser will be held on Friday, March 24 at 7 p.m. at the Marion Music Hall.  Gather a team of five to six members and compete in a battle of wits to benefit the library. Topics include local history, sports, pop culture and more. Find registration forms at the library or online. Refreshments including beer and wine will be available. There is a $200 team entry fee.

Cultivate your green thumb with the library on Wednesday, March 29 at 4 p.m. Celebrate the reopening of the library’s seed library by decorating a flower pot with a funny face and planting your own quick growing plant. At the seed library, check out fruit, vegetable, herb, and flower seeds with a library card. Share seeds with the library and help grow community gardens.

Then, mark your calendars for the library’s “Tables of Content” event on Sunday, May 7 and Friday, May 19 at 6 p.m. This fundraising event pairs a delicious dinner in a Marion neighbor’s home with a lively book discussion.
