It is our mission to advance and support the literacy, educational, and cultural goals of the libraries of Bolinas and Stinson Beach.
Our local libraries are a beloved treasure and resource in our small vibrant community. This intergenerational meeting place is host to learning, sharing and preserving our history. The Marin county library system provides our community with a broad offering of books, film, music and other media as well as access to computers, the internet, ebooks and streaming services.
The Friends of the Bolinas Stinson Beach Libraries provide 16 additional hours of library staffing thanks to donors. Thus, the libraries are open at times that they were formally closed. Additionally, we fund a wide range of programming including readings, theater productions, screenings, artist talks, summer camps, reading groups and more.
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
— Jorge Luis Borges
The library has wide range of ongoing events like readings, classes, workshops, screening and theater productions. We’ve done author events with local friends like Joanne Kyger, Frances McDormand, Josh Churchman, Stephen Ratcliffe, Eric Karpeles, Peter Orner and Andrew Schelling and host visiting authors and artists when they come through the Bay Area.
