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
