Friends Groups

From the Branch Manager: Community Library Specialist Jane Silvia and I welcome you to the Bolinas Library. The little Bolinas library is hour-for-hour one of the busiest branches in the County. Our patrons include a creative community of artists, storytellers, musicians, and writers whose work is available for check out from our Local Authors’ Collection. Community interests are reflected in our programming. Recent programs include poetry readings, storytelling, writing classes, and local composers’ evenings. Our location, just one long block from the beach, lends an air of relaxation and fun to this busy West Marin branch.
