Access to the Felburn Library
Marion County Public School staff may access and check out books from the library during normal working hours. We do ask that staff schedule an appointment for their visits so that we can assure the building is open and staffed. The library's holdings are online in the Destiny System. For more information please visit Destiny. Please email Silver River Museum for more information.
While we do not check books out to the public, members of the public may access the library, for reference only, with prior notice. Please schedule use of the library at least one week in advance. Public visitation to the library must be scheduled around class trips.
