Margaret Woolfolk Library

100 N. Currie St.
Marion, AR  72364


Made possible by a donation from the Forrest N. “Joe” Jenkins family and other donations from the community, the Margaret Woolfolk Library was completed in 2001, later expanded, and now houses the Crittenden County Library in a cooperative effort with the City of Marion. The library is located on the site of the old Marion Community House, and its rustic American farmhouse design is reminiscent of the design of the community house itself. It is a focal point for children’s activities in the summers and after school. The library is named for Margaret Woolfolk, a lifelong Marionite who was editor of the local newspaper, now the West Memphis Evening Times, for more than 40 years. After retiring from that career, Miss Woolfolk began a new one as a college student, law student and practicing attorney in Marion. She also served as the city’s historian, and left several hours of her recollections on videotape at the library.
