InfoSeekers Program

What is InfoSeekers?

InfoSeekers is a great FREE library resource to help your students with their research projects!

A collaborative program between the San Mateo-Foster City School District and the San Mateo Public Library, InfoSeekers is geared to 4th and 5th graders that assists students in evaluating, organizing and assembling information for school assigned research projects.

Students bring their research from school and can do additional research in the Children's Area of the Main Library. Here, students work with volunteers who guide them through the steps to organize and complete their project.

If you are a teacher who will be referring students to this resource, we'd appreciate it if you could email us a copy of the assignment so we can better prepare for your students.
Access copies of our flyer that you can distribute in your class room.

If you are a parent who will be bringing your child in to use this resource, please make sure they bring a copy of their assignment with them.
