Travel The Library Landscape: Twenty-Five Years of MARINet 

You’ve got your routines. Your go-tos. Your regular haunts. It’s time to branch out. Did you know there are twenty-two different public and academic library locations you can visit within Marin County? They’re all part of the MARINet consortium, which just turned twenty-five.

From November 1st through April 10th, 2017, travel the library landscape of Marin County. Though all part of the same MARINet system, each library is unique, with its own character, local flavor and community. To circulate amongst all of them is to be energized by the abundance of a much richer system of materials, collections, community, and programs.

Pick up a special commemorative passport at any MARINet library, get it stamped as you visit new library locations, and your next vacation could be on us.  Get more adventurous – try MARINet services, explore library archives, visit Friends bookstores – and you have an even better chance of winning fabulous prizes: $250 Southwest Airlines gift cards, $100 Amtrak gift certificates and $50 Clipper Cards

So go out and visit the different libraries, stores, etc. and get stamps! By using virtual and in-library services, you will also earn stamps. With a certain # of stamps, you become eligible for a raffle ticket. Max of 3 raffle tickets per person.

  • If you visit 20/22 of the libraries, you earn one raffle ticket.
  • If you try 7/9 services listed in the passport, you earn one raffle ticket.
  • If you visit 8/10 Friends bookstores or archives, you earn one raffle ticket.
