The 2019 Library Takeover application process has closed.

Do you have an idea for an event or activity you’d like to see at your Redwood City Public Library?

Are you interested in helping us celebrate the diversity of our community?

If so, come and take over your library!

Library Takeover will provide small one-time grants of up to $1,000 to groups of people in the Redwood City and North Fair Oaks communities who have an idea for a Library program or event that will help us reach and connect with people in the community who don't currently use the Library. Teams selected for the grants will receive help from Library staff in the development and delivery of their library programs. The goal of Library Takeover is to create more Library activities that help everyone in our community see the Library as a welcoming place and a valuable resource.

Whether you have a specific event idea or not, join us to learn more about what’s happening at the library and to connect with others. Your library already provides many activities for learning together, but we’re looking for fresh ideas to help everyone in Redwood City and North Fair Oaks feel welcome and included in the Library. Library Takeover is sponsored by the SAGA Foundation and the Friends of the Redwood City Public Library.

¿Tiene alguna idea para un evento o actividad que le gustaría ver en su Biblioteca Pública de Redwood City?

¿Está interesado en ayudarnos a celebrar la diversidad de nuestra comunidad?

Si es así, ¡venga y tome posesión de su biblioteca!

El programa “Toma de la Biblioteca” proporcionará pequeñas becas, por una sola vez, de hasta $ 1,000 para grupos de personas en las comunidades de Redwood City y North Fair Oaks que tengan una idea para un programa o evento en la Biblioteca que nos ayudará a alcanzar y conectar con personas de la comunidad que actualmente no utilizan la biblioteca. Los equipos seleccionados para las becas recibirán ayuda del personal de la Biblioteca en el desarrollo y la presentación de sus programas bibliotecarios. El objetivo del programa “Toma de la Biblioteca” es crear más actividades que ayuden a todos en nuestra comunidad a ver la biblioteca como un lugar acogedor y un recurso valioso.

Ya sea que tenga una idea específica de un evento o no, únase a nosotros para aprender más sobre lo que está sucediendo en su biblioteca y para conectarse con otros. Su biblioteca ya ofrece muchas actividades para aprender juntos, pero estamos buscando nuevas ideas para ayudar a todos en Redwood City y North Fair Oaks a sentirse bienvenidos e incluidos en la Biblioteca. El programa 'Toma de la Biblioteca' es patrocinado por la Fundación SAGA y los Amigos de la Biblioteca Pública de Redwood City.
