Thank You to Our Supporters!

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated supporters. Thanks to you, our vision for a new modern Larkspur Library and community gathering space has come to life. We could not have achieved this without you. Thank you!
We are deeply grateful to Scott Lockard for creating the conceptual drawings that brought our vision to life. We would not be where we are today without his generosity and talent. We regret that Scott is not with us today to see the new library come to fruition.
