The Marin County Free Library, a member of the Partnership's leadership team, has developed some innovative and collaborative ways to support learning while the 10 library branches are closed.

Partnering with local school districts and the Marin Promise Partnership, MCFL expanded its existing Wi-Fi hotspot services to students who have little or no access to the Internet so they don’t miss a beat with distance learning. Staff members from the Marin City Library embedded at Bayside Martin Luther King Jr. Academy in Marin City distributed Wi-Fi hotspots and Chromebooks to students and bagged food for the food bank. They also reached out to families in the after-school programs Smarty Ants and Reading Buddies to see if kids needed support.
