Sign Up!

Last summer, over 14,000 children from Redwood City and North Fair Oaks participated in the Summer Learning Challenge at Redwood City Public Library, which is extraordinary! Our goal is to get up to 50% of the kids 0–12 in Redwood City and North Fair Oaks to enjoy the benefits of the program. That would require about 20,000 kids to sign up. So tell your friends, family, kids, grand-kids, great grand-kids, school connections, and members of your church: the Library looks forward to seeing everyone during the 2017 Summer Learning Challenge!

For more information about the Summer Learning Challenge and to sign up online go here.

The Summer Learning Challenge programs are made possible by the support of the Friends of Redwood City Public Library.
