County of San Mateo Employee Spotlight

Luz Galicia

Community Program Specialist

Meet Luz Galicia, one of our amazing Community Program Specialists (CPS) at San Mateo County Libraries (SMCL). She has been with the County for six years and started her career as an SMCL Summer Outreach Intern.  

Luz says the internship changed the trajectory of her life because she discovered her appreciation for helping others. Shortly after working the internship, she was offered a library aide position at the San Carlos library.  

Today, as a CPS, she devotes most of her time to planning and organizing outreach events that help San Mateo County residents know about the resources the library provides. She is passionate about building relationships between the community and the library so they can look at the libraries as a safe place.  

One of her fondest memories since working at SMCL is when 100+ kids attended her weekly story time session. During the session, she recognized most of the attendees in the crowd which made her feel a huge sense of pride in the work she had done to build that program up. It’s no surprise that when asked which #smcgov value she resonates with the most, she said “community engagement”.  

We encourage you to share San Mateo County Libraries summer internship opportunity with your family and friends.
