Marin Public Libraries Get $175K Grant For Better Internet

MARIN COUNTY — Marin County Libraries are looking forward to network equipment updates aimed at enhancing the reliability and speed of internet services and contributing to local digital literacy initiatives.

The updates will be funded by a $175,211 state grant to MARINet, a group of public and academic libraries in the county, according to a Marin County press release published on Thursday. The project will be completed over the next year with the help of local firm Marin IT.

“Providing internet access at libraries bridges the digital divide in our community, empowering all individuals to explore, learn, connect, and thrive in the digital age,” Belvedere Tiburon Library Director Crystal Duran said, according to the press release.


The grant is funded by the State of California and administered by the California Library Connect program on behalf of the California State Library.

MARINet libraries include Marin County Free Library, Belvedere Tiburon Library, College of Marin Library, Dominican University of California’s Archbishop Alemany Library, Larkspur Library, Mill Valley Public Library, San Anselmo Public Library, San Rafael Public Library, and Sausalito Public Library.
