The mission of the San Mateo Public Library Foundation (SMPLF), which began in 1994, is to raise funds to support the programs and services of the San Mateo Public Library. The Foundation provides ongoing financial assistance to expand collections and to support childrenís programming, the Project Read Literacy Program, the Biotechnology Learning Center, and to provide special funding for cultural programs planned by the African-American, Latino, Asian and Iranian-American Cultural Advisory Committees and other special programs the Library offers. In 2009, the SMPLF contributed over $100,000 in program funds to the Library. In the past year, the SMPLF completed a $10 million Capital Campaign.
The SMPLF provides ongoing support for expanding the Library's collection of books, DVDs, newspapers magazines and journals and other resources. It supports the Biotechnology Learning Center, which connects professionals and members of the community with previous and new developments in the biotech industry and their impact on the health and well-being of members of our community. It continues to provide literacy tutoring services to our community through Project Read. It provides important outreach services to serve the youngest members of our community and it supports expanded programming for all, including cultural and ethnic program.
