Learning for Life at Your Library
Celebrating 26 years of service to the communities of Colma, Daly City, San Bruno, and South San Francisco.
Mission Statement: We assist adults and their families in reaching their literacy and financial goals.

Literacy Importance
Financial literacy is just as important to an individual's future as good basic reading and writing skills. Awareness and understanding of both basic literacy and financial literacy skills are the foundation on which individuals have the capacity to make important decisions.

  • “Project Read has always steered me in the right direction. I wanted to show Jacqueline the right way to plan for her future when it came to her finances.” Patty, Client
