Lending Program Coming Soon!
Art lending will begin in early 2024. Art will be available to borrow with a library card, just like a book or a magazine.
In the initial phase of this program, art works will be available to borrow from the South Novato, Point Reyes Station, Inverness, Corte Madera and Marin City libraries, with plans to expand the program to all ten Marin County Free Library branches in the future.
More details about the lending program to come.
The On the Wall Community Art Lending program is a partnership between the Marin County Free Library and Marin Department of Cultural Services. The collection is generously supported by the Marin County Library Foundation, Tomales Bay Library Association, Friends of the Marin City Library, and Friends of the Novato Libraries.
