Redwood City Library Foundation (RCLF) was founded by Georgi LaBerge, former Redwood City Mayor and Sandra Cooperman, who were frequently frustrated by the lack of city funds to support the Library. In 1998, they gathered a group of friends, established a nonprofit organization, and began raising money to supplement, not supplant, public funding for the Redwood City Public Library.

The Foundation continues to serve as the fundraising arm and innovation engine for the Library.  Governed by a volunteer board of directors, the Foundation raises money from individuals, foundations, and businesses to support the Library.
