Starting at the Library, stroll through downtown Redwood City with fellow RCLF supporters and enjoy a libation at up to 8 different establishments. Each pub will feature a banned book with an RCLF board member to answer questions. Your ticket will entitle you to discounted drinks (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) at each of the locations identified with a secret chalk logo on the sidewalk. Tickets purchased before September 1 receive an early bird discount and a commemorative t-shirt.

In 1922 there were Speakeasies – pubs had to quietly let people know where they could share a drink. In 2022, we are making sure libraries don’t have to become the speakeasies for Banned Books!

*Banned Books Week (September 18-24, 2022) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. It spotlights current and historical attempts to challenge books in libraries and schools. Read more about Frequently Challenged Books and Unite Against Book Bans.

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.
