20 years of Library Support
Our mission is to support the Redwood City Library Foundation in cultivating literacy, life-long learning, and community connections.
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.
Since its founding, the Redwood City Library Foundation has raised more than $3 million for the Library.
We provide funding for programs like:
Bridging the Digital Divide (community Wi-Fi Project, providing technology and equal internet access for youth)
Upgrades for Interpretive Center in the Redwood Shores Library
Early childhood learning centers in all Redwood City Libraries
Baby Bay in the Downtown Library
Career on-line High School in the Library
Free books for families
Writing cats and dogs program
