Outdoors unlocked for library members.
ACCORDING TO THE American Library Association, 58 percent of adults in the United States have a library card — are you one of them? If so, chances are you already reap the many benefits this membership provides, and they’re even better now. The directors of the Marin County Free Library and Marin County Parks teamed up and created a program that allows library patrons to visit parks free of charge. At 10 MCFL branches and the traveling Bookmobile, library card holders can check out passes to McNears Beach in San Rafael, Paradise Beach in Tiburon, Miller boat launch in Tomales, Stafford Lake Park in Novato and Black Point boat launch. The passes may also be placed on hold, making it a breeze to grab a book and head outside this spring. marinlibrary.org
