Beginning this month, exciting changes are underway at the Fair Oaks Branch of the Redwood City Public Library. Thanks to support from County of San Mateo Measure K funding, with additional funding from the City of Redwood City and the Redwood City Library Foundation, the Fair Oaks Branch Library will be expanding and renovating to better meet the needs of the community.
The new Library will include several exciting features, including:
- New Teen Space with brand new technology and furniture
- Bilingual Farmers Market Truck interactive play area to teach early literacy skills and nutrition
- New children's furniture and shelving that can be easily moved to create more space for programs and activities
- New comfortable adult seating for studying
- New carpet and upholstery throughout the Library
- More power outlets in table tops for plugging in laptops and phone chargers
- New smaller ergonomic desk for staff
During construction, which will expand the Library from 3200 square feet to 3800 square feet, the Fair Oaks Library at 2510 Middlefield Road will be closed, but a temporary library space will be open next door in the Fair Oaks Community Center at 2600 Middlefield Road.
