Agenda - The Public Library in the Digital World
Presenter: Sara Jones
Director of County Library Services
Sara will talk with us about what's happening in our libraries today.
From its beginning in 1927 in the basement of the old Marin County Courthouse in San Rafael, the Marin County Free Library has grown to a network of 10 branches throughout the County and a Bookmobile. The Library provides public access computers, free wireless, story-time for pre-schoolers, adult and teen book clubs, and programs for children, teens and adults as well as study space for students of all ages. Library Beyond Walls brings materials to homebound patrons, and its Literacy program serves both families and individuals. Furthermore, through its website, or eBranch, the Library continues to provide information and reading material for its patrons at home, work or school even when its physical branches are closed.
