Many of you are taking the opportunity during the statewide shelter in place to do some organizing and bookshelf weeding. You may also be planning to donate some of your books and media to the Friends Book Sale. Since the library is closed, the Friends are not able to accept these donations right now. Kindly hold on to these materials and then contact the Friends, once the library is back open, to make arrangements for your items to be received.

Please do not leave materials outside of the branches or put them in the book return bins! :(

Thanks and please stay safe.

This week, they've got a podcast to tell you all about the San Mateo Public Library and the Foundation.

It's a fun and interesting 5 minute listen and we are simply delighted to be featured. Thank you, San Mateo Focus!
