Learning Wheels, a program of Project Read, provides services to hard-to-reach neighborhoods in North San Mateo County. Imagine a school on wheels where young children can hear stories, use a state-of-the-art computer, receive free books, and play with interactive educational toys.
You’ve just imagined Learning Wheels. Best of all, it is a free service of the libraries of South San Francisco, Daly City, and San Bruno.
Learning Wheels Visits
In partnership with community organizations, Learning Wheels goes to health care centers, home day care centers, homeless shelters, health care centers, and individual homes. At each visit, families receive free books, hear a story time, and get community information and advice about parental concerns from an credentialed teacher. Since Learning Wheels began in 2000, more than 37,000 people have come aboard. For more information, please view "Learning Wheels," a short video produced by Kaiser Permanente for the City.
