Marin County Free Library is now providing a Popup Teen Study & Distance Learning Space for Teens of Essential Workers. This popup learning site is designed to provide continued learning support in a fun and safe space for teens whose parents are responding to this public health crisis, as part of the Marin County Emergency Popup Childcare Program.
The Marin County Emergency PopUp Childcare Program supports all essential workers working or living in Marin while classroom instruction has been suspended in our community. The program is being offered through a collaboration of agencies and organizations across the County: County of Marin, Marin County Office of Education, Marin County public school districts, Marin County Free Library, City of San Rafael, North Bay Children’s Center, Community Action Marin, Marin YMCA, and North Marin Community Services.
Launched on March 19, the program was first opened to frontline hospital workers at Kaiser San Rafael Medical Center, Marin Medical Center, and Novato Community Hospital / Sutter Health. The program is now open to public safety first responders, active disaster service workers, and all essential workers. Drop-in childcare is not being offered at any location.
All childcare centers follow social distancing, sanitation, and hygiene practices described in detail in the March 13, 2020 Public Health Advisory on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Childcare Guidance.
