The Annual Authors Gala

‚Äč

is a lively celebration of the San Mateo Public Library and the inspiring role it plays in our community. Our generous attendees enjoy an intimate evening of music, food, drink and paddle-raising capped off by a stimulating presentation by a distinctive and relevant author of note. All proceeds from the event help support the Foundation’s partnership with the Library, which makes possible the state-of-the-art programs that serve San Mateo and Hillsborough residents of every age.

 

In 2019, the Author's Gala generated over $195K in proceeds for the Foundation, including over $80K specifically dedicated to the expansion of the Library’s technology lending services.

 

If you would like to volunteer to help with the event or make and auction item donation, please contact us at 650.558.9100 or info@smplf.org.
