"I was delighted to review the Anti-Racism and Equity Strategic Plan from the Marin County Free Library. The clear focus on racial equity and specific inclusion of joyful learning environments confirms my belief that the Library’s mission is closely aligned with the work of the Marin County Office of Education. It is exciting to work in partnership with the visionary and committed team at the Marin County Free Library."
