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.

Urgent Need for Hotspots 

In this unprecedented time of public health crisis, the temporary loss of the wifi in our public spaces brought into sharp relief how great the need for the hotspots provided by the Bridging the Digital Divide project. The library has ordered an additional 100 hotspots to help meet community demand. 

The RCLF wants to raise $60,000 toward purchasing these devices. We need your help! Please donate to help the library help our community!
