Mission Statement

The Larkspur Public Library seeks to enrich the lives of its community by providing the library resources and services needed to fulfill their information, recreational and cultural interests; to act as a responsive resource for independent, lifelong learning; to provide a comfortable space and opportunities to gather and connect, and by fostering a love of reading.

As a member of the MARINet Consortium, the Larkspur Library shares its collections with five other City libraries, the Marin County Free Library, the Dominican University of California, and the College of Marin collections.
