Who We Are


More than 822,000 people used the library last year and more than 31,000 people attended 905 dynamic and educational programs.

The San Mateo Public Library Foundation provides funding to bridge the gap between what city and state resources provide, and what our diverse community needs and expects from a 21st century community resource. 

Our mission to seek private financial support from the community to ensure that high-quality Library programs and services will always be available.

With the completion of the 10 million dollar Capital Campaign in June 2010, to fund construction of the Library, The San Mateo Public Library Foundation turned a pivotal page in our history.  The Foundation is now eager to focus 100% of our energies on raising funds to support the Library’s important and innovative programs.
