Special Teen Programs and Volunteer Opportunities at the Redwood City Public Library

Redwood City, CA - November 5 , 2004 - The Redwood City Public Library offers many free enrichment programs and volunteer opportunities for teens.

  • A special, first- time-offered workshop entitled “College Track Preparation: Get a Head Start on Planning for College” takes place on Wednesday, November 10 2004 at 7:00 pm, in the Teen Homework Center located at the downtown library. The program, meant to encourage teens to prepare for college early, is targeted for students in 6th and 7th grades. Parents are invited to accompany their children.
  • The library is planning a new teen/student space at the downtown library and is seeking assistance from teenagers. It’s an opportunity to help design a comfortable and welcoming space for teens in which to study, learn, and socialize. Teens volunteering for this project are eligible to earn two hours of community service. Monthly meetings are scheduled from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm on November 16; January 11; February 8; March 8; and April 5. Please contact Diane Casey at 780-7035 or via email for more information.
  • Due to heavy use, the Teen Homework Center is extending open hours to Saturdays, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Students in grades 6th through 12th can get help with their reports, math, science, and language arts assignments. Bilingual tutors help teens negotiate the library and the Internet, and offer assistance free of charge. The Teen Homework Center is a project of the Redwood City Library Foundation and can be found adjoining the Adult Reference Room in at the downtown library. The center is also open during the week, Monday through Thursday, from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. For more information, call 780-5937.

The Redwood City Public Library offers many free programs for children, adults, and families, and helps our community to “understand the past, prepare for the future, and thrive in the present.” For more information about library events and services you may pick up a calendar in any Redwood City library, visit the library’s home page at, or call 780-7026.
