About

Change a Life With Books! San Mateo County Library is now seeking volunteers to help facilitate book groups with incarcerated youth. In order to connect these students with literacy and library services, we have been offering a book club for five years run by library staff and volunteers. The time commitment is only two hours a night over four consecutive Thursday or or one other weeknight plus some preparation time. Those who are new at this will go out in pairs with experienced staff. To find out more about this program, there will be an informational and planning meeting TBA at the San Mateo County Library Headquarters, 125 Lessingia Ct, San Mateo, CA. If you would like to help change a life through books, please contact Christina Olsen. Email if you need directions.
