The Author's Gala raised over $135,000 for the San Mateo Public Library Foundation!
Gala contributions will not only continue to support Library hours but will help launch a new technology lending service featuring:
- Hand-held portable devices for use inside and outside the Library
- WiFi hot-spots to use with devices at home or outside the Library
- Tools to address the digital divide in San Mateo community
This new service enables Library to be always "open" to the families, children, students and business professionals in our community. Thank you for your support!
