Thank you for helping us celebrate Makerspace
& raising money for the library!

The Makerspace is now open and has begun hosting a variety of programs and activities! It is 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.

Our sneak preview event was a lot of fun.  Thanks to the many community supporters who joined us and helped make this project possible. 

There is still time to help us fully equip the Makerspace. The Podcast Room, 3D printers and laser cutters are coming soon.

Behind the Scenes at the Library

We recently celebrated National Library Week. This is an annual opportunity to show support for the people and programs that make public libraries such a vital part of our community.


See Redwood City Library Foundation Board Vice-President Nancy Radcliffe talk about the library and other behind the scenes videos from the Redwood City Public Library. It's a great way to learn about what makes our library so special.
