The Foundation is pleased to participate in the upcoming launch event for the Leadership Council of San Mateo County, featuring best-selling author Tom Rath. Join us on Friday, February 26th @ 11am for a conversation with Tom and moderator, NBC Bay Area News anchor Raj Mathai, as they discuss Rath's latest book "Life's Great Question" and how to make your work and life more meaningful. Proceeds from the event will benefit San Mateo County's COVID relief fund, San Mateo Strong.

Co-founded by former SMPLF Board of Directors President, Margi Power, and community leader, Kaarin Hardy, Leadership Council of San Mateo County will provide leadership training and educational programs for San Mateo County residents seeking to contribute to their community.

It was a beautiful Fall afternoon for a book drive! Over the course of two hours, a dozen volunteers, Foundation and Library staff, and our dedicated City Librarian, greeted a steady stream of neighbors and patrons with book and media donations. We more than filled the Library's small meeting room. Once the items have quarantined for a few days, we'll be sorting for "gems" to sell on our Amazon platform to raise much needed collection support funding for the Library. Thank you all for your generosity! If you missed this one, keep your eyes out -- weather and other logistics permitting, we may be back in a few weeks.
