Introducción

Bienvenido a la página de recursos y aprendizaje de la Biblioteca Gratuita del Condado de Marín centrada en el Condado de Marín y la carretera Sir Francis Drake. Compartir información para ayudar a la comunidad del Condado de Marín a conectarse, aprender y explorar es parte de nuestra Misión. Esta página incluye información y perspectivas recopiladas de fuentes locales, nacionales e internacionales sobre la comunidad indígena de Marín, Los Miwok Costeros, presente cuando Sir Francis Drake se aventuró en lo que ahora es el condado de Marín; Sir Francis Drake la persona; y, a principios del siglo XX, el nombre unificado de la carretera de 43 millas que ahora se llama Calzada Sir Francis Drake. La información en esta página y los enlaces asociados no son exhaustivos, aunque esperamos que los recursos accesibles a través de esta página crezcan.

Cuando lancemos esta página en julio de 2020, su propósito es apoyar las necesidades de información expresadas por los miembros de la comunidad del Condado de Marín. Con el tiempo, MCFL anticipa el interés de grupos escolares y una muestra representativa de miembros de la comunidad. Si tiene información (materiales publicados) que podría ser útil para los miembros de la comunidad interesados en este tema, como con cualquier idea de material publicada, utilice nuestro formulario de contacto en línea para enviar su sugerencia para una revisión.
