We are so excited to introduce our new mobile preschool bus! It’s a brand-new bus with a brand-new name – the FLAGship is now called the Learning Bus.
For 18 years, and over 147,000 miles, our FLAGship bus has delivered school readiness and early literacy to children and families across Marin County. Our program has provided tremendous support to our community by bringing equitable, early childhood services directly to children and families. After many miles and memories, our faithful blue bus is ready to retire and we are honored to announce the arrival of our new bus.
The first reveal for the new Learning Bus will be at the Board of Supervisors Meeting on October 8.
The Learning Bus is a FREE drop-in mobile preschool program of the Marin County Free Library. Our bus delivers bilingual activities that support early childhood development through exploration, stories, songs, games, art, and lots of fun! Our classes are designed for children 0 to 5 years old and provide a great opportunity for parents to engage with their children while preparing them for school. Come play and learn on our bus! Visit our webpage for details of our stops and schedules: www.marinlibrary.org/learningbus
We would like to thank the County of Marin, Marin Community Foundation and Marin County Library Foundation for their generous donations, as well as the voters of Marin for supporting Measure A. Thank you also to First 5 Marin and Parent Services Project for their ongoing support.
And the most special thanks to all our faithful FLAGship families who have waited so patiently and are so excited to start class on our beautiful new bus.
Join us to welcome the Marin County Free Library brand-new vehicle!
