The Foundation for San Mateo County Libraries (FMSCL) Board Members are taking on a 5k for $5k Challenge to inspire the next generation of readers and leaders. Board Members will be raising funds by completing a total of 5 kilometers or more exercising and reaching out to their networks to raise funds for Big Lift Inspiring Summers and Raising A Reader - countywide programs led by San Mateo County Libraries in partnership with The Big Lift. Last year, the board rallied and raised close to $9,000 for innovative programs and services of the Libraries. 

From July 11 to 18 board members will be sharing their 5K Challenge experience via social media. Join us in supporting them as they run, walk, swim, bike and more – to raise funds that will help support youth & families. One of the summer programs is highlighted here. 

The Foundation for San Mateo County Libraries was established in 2018 to create a legacy for the libraries. Together, we will ensure the continued strength of San Mateo County Libraries. San Mateo County Libraries serves the diverse communities of Atherton, Belmont, Brisbane, East Palo Alto, Foster City, Half Moon Bay, Millbrae, North Fair Oaks, Pacifica, Portola Valley, San Carlos, Woodside, and the unincorporated areas of San Mateo County.
