The existing Larkspur Library has numerous concerns and limitations.
The city is contributing a 2.4 acre parcel and has an approved master plan for its development as a new public facility.
There is urgency to act.
There is a unique opportunity to respond to these needs with a project that is at once dynamic and cost-effective. It is to build a modern regional library and public square on land that the City of Larkspur owns on Doherty Drive, close to shops, restaurants, and schools. It will have all those elements that make a society vibrant and healthy.
Modern libraries mix physical and virtual spaces to provide quiet reading areas with adjacent talkative busy areas that are designed to be flexible and respond to public and cultural changes over time. The new building will have the following features.
Lori Lerner & Terry Berkemeier, Joanne Bethlahmy Estate, Kristi & Jonathan Ellenzweig, Barbara & Karl Friday, Kathy & Christopher Hartzell, Marisa & Joe Jennings, City of Larkspur, Christina (Tina) McArthur, Dyan & Peter Pyke, Cindy & Chris Winship
