McCoskey Room at MCL

The McCoskey Room, located on Marion Carnegie Library’s bottom floor, is named for, and dedicated to the memory of, Robert G. McCoskey, who was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Marion Carnegie Library from December 1983 until his death in March 2001. Mr. McCoskey served as president of the board from 1988 to 2001.

His dedication sustained the library through a period of transition, and under his leadership the library completed a major renovation and expansion project in 1997 that resulted in one of the finest facilities in Illinois.
