MARIN COUNTY FREE LIBRARY : With a mission to engage the community, provide innovative library services and foster lifelong learning, the Marin County Free Library (MCFL) serves the unincorporated areas of Marin County as well as the cities and towns of Corte Madera, Fairfax, Marin City, Ross, and Novato. Along with a dedicated share of a stable local property tax, MCFL enjoys broad community support as shown by the passage of a supplemental parcel tax by more than 78%.

Stops are focused on children, seniors and remote areas of the County where patrons are unable to reach physical libraries.
