Who We Are
The Larkspur Library Foundation is managed by a Board of Directors and their officers. The efforts of the Board and its officers are entirely voluntary. These volunteers donate their time and talent to growing the Foundation so that it can continue to provide support for the Larkspur Library, known affectionately as the "World's Greatest Little Library".
