Over 20 Years of Redwood City Public Library Support

Since 1998 the Redwood City Library Foundation has raised over $3 million to provide funding for important library programs.

Our Mission
 

Our mission is to support the Redwood City Library in cultivating literacy, life-long learning, and community connections.

Our Vision


We envision a community where everyone has access to information, knowledge and technology.

 

The Foundation is a not-for-profit organization 501(c)(3) established in 1998 and governed by a volunteer board of directors. A professional staff raises and administers gifts and ensures the effectiveness of funded programs.

Working with individual, foundation, and corporate donors, the Foundation acts as the “fundraising arm” of the library. We solicit donations to support specific services, improvements, collections and programs. We work with the Library to identify the best way donors’ gifts can enhance the Library and meet the ever changing needs of the community.
 

Makerspace in the Library

Construction for the Redwood City Makerspace is underway! A Makerspace is a collaborative workspace designed for making, learning, exploring, and sharing.

 

The Makerspace will be a powerful addition to our local community because it provides free universal access to tools and programming for entrepreneurs, tinkerers, artists, small business owners, and more.

 

We anticipate a sneak peak in early December 2021!
