Ensure a Great Experience

Experience Backpacks offer Mill Valley residents free access to a variety of local experiences.

A few notes to make sure you have a great experience:

  • You can check out an experience backpack if you have a valid library card (this means your fines are under $10 and your card is not expired).
  • Backpacks can be checked out by patrons over 16, but enjoyed by people of any age.
  • The backpacks provide materials for 2 people but could be used by more if you would like to share.
  • Please check the library's hours to make sure we'll be open when you plan to pick up your backpack.
  • Backpacks may be picked up on a first-come, first-served basis. You may call the library to see if a backpack is available for pick up.
  • Backpacks are due before the library closes one week from the day the backpack was checked out and must be returned to a staff person at the Circulation Desk during open hours on or before the due date. Please do not leave backpacks near book drops or at the front door.
  • Use Experience Backpacks responsibly to avoid fines or suspension of privileges.
