Anti-Racism & Equity Strategic Plan

The Marin County Free Library is very pleased to bring you our new five-year Anti-Racism & Equity Strategic Plan. This plan was created through listening sessions with staff and community members from across Marin County in 2023 and 2024. Our communities clearly expressed the need for Marin County Free Library to be a convener, racial equity advocate, information champion, and a necessary resource for every individual living in Marin.

At the heart of this strategic plan lies our unwavering commitment to creating joyful learning pathways and environments, providing equitable service to all in Marin, working collaboratively with partners for the greatest impact, and centering community power in our spaces and services.
