Neighborhood Library Spotlight: Schaberg Branch Library

The Schaberg Branch Library, located on Euclid Avenue near Roosevelt School and Key Market, is the only Redwood City branch library located west of El Camino Real. Named for Herman Schaberg, San Mateo County Clerk from 1903–1907, the branch was built as the result of a $20,000 bequest to the Library by Mrs. Hannah Schaberg in memory of her late husband. The branch opened in 1957.

Schaberg is popular early in the day with neighborhood seniors, although young families also enjoy the storytime programs every Tuesday, Wednesday, and every other Saturday. After school lets out, a number of Roosevelt students can be found in the Library, and an intensive after school homework support program in partnership with local nonprofit, Generations United and the Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department serves the needs of these youth.
