National Library Week

25 Apr 2023 9:29 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Happy National Library Week! The theme for this year is “There’s More to the Story.” Our libraries don’t just have books, music, and movies for us to check out. Our libraries bring the community together through story times, classes, and lectures. In addition to free online access to newspapers and streaming films, the San Mateo Public Libraries offer the following free resources (some not available at all branches):

  • Museum passes through Discover and Go

  • 6 months of access to premium features of the Calm app

  • Bicycle check-out (Book-a-Bike, must be 18 years or older)

  • Printing time with 3D printers

  • Use of laser cutters (must be 13 years or older)

  • Use of virtual reality (VR) headsets (must be 13 years or older)

  • Sewing machines (must be 18 years or older)

  • Memory Labs, where you can digitize photos, VHS tapes, audio cassettes, etc

Some branches have Maker Spaces with different types of equipment available for you to use.

All of this is available for free, as long as you have a library card!
