Ways to Help

Join us in supporting the Redwood City Library to provide important services to all of the residents of Redwood City.

Redwood City Library Resiliency Fund

For more than 20 years, the Redwood City Library Foundation has been funding Redwood City’s Public Libraries to help cultivate literacy, life-long learning, and community connections. Students like Aldo in the Familias Unidas program are better prepared for distance education thanks to your donations to the Redwood City Library Foundation. To ensure our libraries are supported for today and tomorrow, the Foundation has set up a Resiliency Fund. Donating to the Library’s Resiliency Fund makes an immediate impact in the lives of adults and children in our community and ensures that library programs and resources continue, despite library doors being closed.

What happens when you invest in our libraries? In just the last year:

  • Over 57,000 residents are library card holders, including over 14,000 children

  • Over 40,000 people attended online library programs and events since March when buildings closed

  • Over 110,000 items have been checked out since buildings closed, with 12,000 curbside pickups

  • Adult learners are earning high school diplomas in our Career Online High School

  • Through digital literacy, hardware and software, and hotspot devices, we are Bridging the Digital Divide

  • You are funding a Makerspace to develop STEM programs that emphasize hands-on learning

Your library is still here for you!


The Redwood City Library Foundation Board of Directors has generously created a Library Resiliency Matching Fund

Your donations make a difference:

  • $25 provides books and crafts to families in our Little Learners program

  • $50 provides a Wi-Fi hotspot loan to a family without internet at home

  • $100 provides 20 free books for families to build their own home library

  • $250 provides a Chromebook educational laptop loan to a student for homework

  • $500 provides an iPad loan for a young child to learn their numbers, ABCs, and shapes

  • $1,000 covers the cost of tuition and materials for an adult learner in our Career Online High School

  • $2,500 sponsors the Makerspace and brings us closer to funding construction in early 2021!
