Since its inception in 2011, Discover & Go has met Contra Costa County Library’s goal of providing access to culture inside and outside of the library by partnering with over 80 California cultural destinations, and making over 1,000,000 visits possible for library cardholders.

511 Contra Costa is a comprehensive Transportation Demand Management (TDM) program that promotes transportation alternatives to the single occupant vehicle and encourages "green commutes". For more information, visit
