Library On Wheels

The Library on Wheels bookmobile is a mobile library primarily serving older adults including those with mobility issues. Our emphasis is bringing the library to the underserved and/or economically disadvantaged areas of San Francisco. The Library on Wheels makes monthly visits to about 30 senior homes or senior centers 

In addition to our regularly scheduled visits, the Library on Wheels also offers free programming. Information on some of the programming we offer can be found here: Library on Wheels Programming
