Programs We Support
Since 1998 the Redwood City Library Foundation has provided over $3 million of funding for resources, programs and services that take our library system to a new level of excellence.
Bridging the Digital Divide
More than one-third of students in Fair Oaks area do not have reliable internet access at home for homework, research and education. On any given day, after closing hours you can find adults and teens in the library’s parking lot on their laptops and tablets so they can complete their homework, finish job applications, and connect with family members using the library’s Wi-Fi.
We are raising money to allow school-age children to check out and take home personal Wi-Fi devices (hotspots) and educational laptops. The program is intended to provide access to the families who currently depend on the library's Wi-Fi hotspot.
