How It Started?

Launched by Contra Costa County Library in 2011 to provide greater access to culture both inside and outside of the library, Discover & Go now includes over 45 library partners and 90 cultural partners. Discover & Go was awarded the 2012 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, the nation’s highest honor recognizing exceptional contributions of museums and libraries.

The program was developed by Contra Costa County Library and Quipu Group, a library-specific software development and consulting company, with funding from a Bay Area Library Information System (BALIS) technology grant. Discover & Go is currently expanding throughout California with grant funding from the California State Library.
