"As a family with young children, the library is an invaluable resource. So much more than just a building, the library acts as a local gathering place where we can all participate in a variety of creative programming, explore books and digital materials, discover new areas of interest, and grow our minds. The library opens up a world of opportunity to ask questions, discuss new topics and for the whole family to continuously cultivate a lifelong curiosity, understanding and a love of learning, both together and independently.”
Barbara FridayLarkspur Library is where dreams grow - where generations come together to learn, to create, to interact, to become
"How do you imagine Larkspur Library - is it a place, a person, or an idea? For some of us, the library is a cozy space where all are welcome - where there is always something fascinating to read - a quiet place to pause during the busyness of our day. To others, the library is a source of information, of inspiration, inhabited by dedicated librarians - people who always have the answer or are willing to help you find it. But in truth, the library is an idea - generations old yet always reinventing itself - where knowledge, curiosity, and growth live in our community. Larkspur Library is where dreams grow - where generations come together to learn, to create, to interact, to become.”
Joe JenningsMore than ever the modern library rely on librarians to help and serve the people.”
“How can I help you? What would you like to read?” When I was eight years old a librarian asked me these questions and started me on a life-long love of books, libraries, and librarians. It may have been one of the first times I got to choose something for myself. It may have been an adult helping me but not telling me. It may have been how books became much loved friends. The librarian, the human face, intellect and heart of the library, has not been replaced by search, webpages, and eBooks. More than ever the modern library rely on librarians to help and serve the people.”
Lori Lerner "The Larkspur Library is like a second home, full of treasures.
"The Larkspur Library is like a second home, full of treasures. From the moment we enter, there’s a feeling of satisfaction, knowing a requested book is waiting for us. We might decide to linger, scan the shelves, and suddenly see a book we’ve been wanting to read. A well-placed chair invites us to sit and let time wash over us. The library is also a place where our children begin their reading journey, where a student works on a project, where research is being done or where a quiet place has been found. As we check out our books we check in with our dedicated librarians, exchanging the latest news and thanks for their advice. We walk outside, books in hand and someone asks, “what are you reading”? If we take the time, the magic continues as we discover a shared love of reading.”
