Donating to the Redwood City Library Foundation’s General Fund

A donation to the Redwood City Library Foundation enables the Redwood City Library to continue to provide services to the residents of Redwood City. We have a crisis in early literacy in our community.  Only 42% of third graders in Redwood City read at a proficient level.  Good library materials and effective literacy programs are critical to improving the literacy rate.  The Foundation is currently raising funds to expand or launch early literacy programs, including the Storytime in the Library and Baby and Me at the Library.  Please donate today to help our community’s children become better readers.

Donate Books and Media to the Redwood City Library

The Friends of the Redwood City Public Library operates a resale book store inside the main library to generate funds to support library programs and events. We accept donations of gently used hard cover and soft cover books, videos, and CDs. The donation box is situated inside the main library’s entrance. For large donations, come to the library’s back door for assistance..

We do not accept magazines, newspapers, encyclopedias, textbooks more than 5 years old, medical/nursing manuals, or training or company manuals. Please do not donate anything that is soiled, torn or has been in storage.
