Redwood City Now and Then
Redwood City Now and Then Photo Project
Celebrate Redwood City history with us. Share your photos of the historic site of the month selected by the  Redwood City Now and Then  Planning Committee. Bring your photos and your stories to share and scan using our high resolution scanners. You can go home with a digital copy of your photograph.
Don't have any photos? No problem! Come hear historical stories from other community members. Sessions are intended to be drop-in but you are welcome to stay for the whole time.

About Us

The Redwood City Public Library inspires learning through innovative and visionary programming and services-literacy programs, support for school success, access to technology, safe, inviting spaces for youth and families, and gathering places that connect the members of the community with a love of reading and learning.

Libraries should be considered "indoor parks" with many learning, cultural, and recreational activities for all ages, incomes, and cultures, and a primary way of helping to build community by promoting community participation and volunteerism.
