Redwood City Public Library’s ‘Meet Your Neighbors’ wins award

Award-winning?  Yes, that would be our Redwood City Public Library.

This year’s 2018 PR Excellence Award, from the California Library Association – recognizes the library’s 2017 “Meet Your Neighbors” campaign.

Maybe you were there for “Meet Your Chefs” – a peek inside the kitchen at some of Redwood City’s best restaurants, or “Speed Meet Your Neighbors” – 3-minutes apiece to meet, greet and maybe make some new friends.  And of course, who can forget “Meet Your Librarians” – introducing the face behind the book (well, not the author – but the person who checks out the book)!

It’s all part of helping new arrivals here feel at home, and making sure even long-time residents know everything that’s going on in our town (because there’s a lot).  And it’s all part of the work honored by the California Library Association.

So congratulations to everyone at the Redwood City Public Libraries, downtown and branch libraries!  And don’t forget to check out a summer reading book or two.
